Long Islanders gather and share experiences from rare total solar eclipse


Monday’s rare total solar eclipse was a delight to people of all ages across the U.S. and Long Island, where folks were treated to 88 percent sun coverage at the eclipse’s peak around 3:30 p.m.

Many people flocked to parks and other viewing areas for unobstructed views and a communal eclipse-watching epxerience.
