Clouds across parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin cleared just enough Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, to offer some a glimpse of a solar eclipse.

The eclipse spanned the country, with some areas experiencing complete blockage for more than 2 minutes. It was the first total solar eclipse in the continental United States in 38 years. A total eclipse will next occur over parts of the U.S. in 2024.
