At 11:40 a.m. Monday in Riverton, Wyoming, a black hole appears in the sky as the moon totally eclipses the sun, lasting for 2 minutes, 20 seconds. The white flare of the sun’s corona is visible. The temperature dropped by 10 degrees, from 80 to 70.


Folks across the Grand Valley donned glasses, peered through cereal boxes and craned their necks to watch Monday’s solar eclipse reach nearly 90 percent totality for two minutes Monday.
