If you didn't realize there was a massive solar eclipse yesterday across the United States, then you probably didn't spend much time on social media. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and for all I know maybe Snapchat were buzzing about the eclipse. Photos mainly looked like a blurry tipped crescent moon on a black sky, or a photo from the inside of a viewing contraption. Some people were a bit more prepared though. Much more prepared in fact. Check out these top 10 captures from today's solar eclipse.
Besides just nailing the exposure and creating an interesting composition, these photographers really captured some amazing images of a truly historic event. It was surprisingly hard to put this list together without being able to look directly at any of the photos.

These photos are beyond amazing. I would not only call them the best of the 2017 Solar Eclipse photos but some of the best shots I've ever seen. The photographers involved should be beyond proud and deserve all the recognition they are getting as these shots blaze around the internet! Oh, and by the way they are all in camera captures with no Photoshop! See for yourself:
Well, that wraps up all the shots I've seen and been extremely impressed with. Did you find some deserving to be included? Please feel free to share in the comments.
