See Drone Footage of the Total Solar Eclipse Plunging a City Into Darkness
Yesterday was both a historical and exciting for Americans. As millions turned their eyes to the sky to watch “The Great American Eclipse” this past Monday, TIME launched a drone in Casper, Wyo., to capture the phenomenon.
The drone footage shows the city of Casper — which was within the path of totality — growing darker as the eclipse progresses. During the minute-long video, street lamps turn on and some fireworks go off, as a crowd of people watches the rare spectacle that crossed the United States on Monday.

If you missed getting the chance to see it live, or if you want to relive the experience, TIME and LIFE VR have created a 360-degree VR livestream of the solar eclipse, which you can stream below.
The TIME and LIFE VR video, made in partnership with Mesmerise Global, shows an on-the-ground view of the 2017 solar eclipse from Casper, Wyo. The footage includes a detailed close up shot of the sun inset for maximum eclipse visibility, making it seem like you are watching it in person. The solar eclipse started in Oregon at 9:05 a.m. PDT and ended at 2:44 p.m. EDT near South Carolina.
