Yet another example of why the Earth is not flat has come and gone. Amateur and Professional photographers alike got their DSLR cameras, cellphones, or poked holes in boxes to catch a glimpse of the event that froze the continent for a few minutes yesterday.

A great shot came from Toronto photographer/videographer, Jon Simo, who put in planning to get a shot with the CN Tower.
Drake had the best view today 🕶// #SolarEclipse . . . I was able to capture this image with a bit of luck and a lot of planning. Shot on my @sonyalpha a6500 and a @sigmaphoto 50-500mm with 2x teleconverter which on the crop sensor gave me 1600mm! . . . I planned out this location using Google Earth, I was able to remotely walk around in advance and find out the best spot for the sun to intersect with the CN Tower. I did a few test shots in advance to get exposure and then today I shot like a mad man 😬📸 There's no possible way to expose both the tower and the eclipse in the same frame so I snapped my first eclipse shot at f/90 (yes my lens goes up to f/90 lol)shutter 1/4000 and using a ND1024 filter. Then I quickly adjusted exposure for the tower, comped them together in photoshop and voila! . . . #agameoftones #vscocam #earthpix #way2ill #hypebeast #toronto #toptorontophoto #visualtoronto #lovetoronto #drake #streetdreamsmag #blogto #eclipse2017 #torontoeclipse #cntower #heatercentral #solareclipseTO #curiocityto
While many people were busy looking up through various eclipse viewing devices that in no way made them look foolish at all..
…Satellites were still looking down and catching the reverse point-of-view of the eclipse.

Speaking of space stuff doin’ space stuff, the International Space Station entered the ring with an eclipse photobomb as it passed in front of the sun yesterday.
Do not let “Science” cloud our vision like a pair of eclipse glasses, some people out there were worrying about the REAL things in this world.
all this commercialization makes me worry we've forgotten the true meaning of the eclipse: preparing for the end and ritualistic sacrifice— Haley Byrd (@byrdinator) August 21, 2017
While some of us may have been busy using the eclipse as an opportunity to summon dark spirits and what have you, others were down right blaming the eclipse on Satan himself.
Unfortunately the reports of possible Lizard People sightings during the eclipse were false as well.
To be honest this was the news that upset me the most yesterday. I was most excited for a new age of humanoid lizards but much like a TV special about the search for the Loch Ness Monster, by the end we were exactly where we left off. Looks like lizard people has to be saved for science-fiction and Illuminati conspiracy theories.
If you missed the eclipse, check out the video of the celestial event that Global News streamed yesterday.
