The Great American Eclipse crossed from coast to coast on Monday, and while New Orleans was not in the path of totality, that didn’t stop residents from taking in the event across town.

Nia Quinn and her son Jay Quinn view the eclipse from the comfort of a blanket at The Fly in uptown New Orleans.

During the astronomical event, tree leaves cast crescent-shaped shadows.

Two sun-gazers get creative using cardboard boxes to view the eclipse.
