It was historical day in Tuscaloosa as residents were able to see an event that rarely happens, a Solar Eclipse! I myself was unable to watch it, because I forgot to nab a pair of the special viewing glasses. But regardless, photos starting pouring in everywhere from the population going outdoors to experience it.

There was the "Monday Mid-day Solar-bration at" Government Plaza:

But it wasn't just Government Plaza that people went out to watch, students at The University of Alabama showed up at The Quad to take in the moment too!

Some people, however weren't as lucky:

Even Ryan Fowler, host of "The Game" on Tide 102.9 and 100.9, and former Alabama Fullback, Martin Houston, Host of "The Blitz" on Tide 102.9 and 100.9 were able to get a glimpse of the moment!

And for those who missed it completely, (like me!) here's a fantastic photo of what it looked like!

All-in-all, it was a historical moment. Unfortunately for those who missed it, the next one won't be for while. Luckily, there will be another time to see one, but the next one won't be until 2024!
