Total solar eclipse leaves watchers across country, metro in awe

The great total solar eclipse of 2017 is now in the history books, but its effects will last a lifetime.

Channel 2 Action News had an exclusive partnership with the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville and had reporters on the ground across Georgia and beyond as the eclipse made its way across the southeast.

We have coverage of this historical event from across the path of totality and across the metro, starting on Channel 2 Action News at 4 p.m.

Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns traveled to Charleston, South Carolina for the big event.

Charleston was the last stop for the eclipse along the path of totality.

Burns watched on with a large crowd of eclipse viewers at the College of Charleston as the sky became darker and darker, reaching totality shortly after 2:30 p.m. Monday.
