Total solar eclipse caught on camera 30,000 feet above the ground – three must watch videos

Americans wore protective glasses and watched in awe the first total solar eclipse to trek across the nation since 1918.  The historic eclipse carved a narrow "path of totality" from coast to coast.  The total eclipse — when the moon completely covers the sun, darkening skies —lasted anywhere from several seconds to up to two and a half minutes.

Americans wore protective glasses and watched in awe the first total solar eclipse to trek across the nation since 1918.

The historic eclipse carved a narrow "path of totality" from coast to coast.

The total eclipse — when the moon completely covers the sun, darkening skies —lasted anywhere from several seconds to up to two and a half minutes.

A breath-taking video of eclipse was taken from a plane, 30,000 feet above the ground. It is not clear where this was taken but AP reports that an Alaska Airlines flight carried experts and reporters to chase the eclipse.

NASA also caught the total eclipse on camera; it turned so dark crickets started chirping. 

Then  there was Donald Trump looking up with naked eyes much against the expert advise.
