Some of NASA's best shots from the 2017 solar eclipse

There should be a giant eclipse photo contest for all the wonderful images, with a $700 million prize and everyone gets to vote. Until then, here's a terrific NASA compilation of some of the coolest shots from professional and amateur alike.

Let's hope all the excitement and cool pictures will inspire more photographers and explorers!
