In case you hadn’t heard, there was a solar eclipse today.

And while the Upper Valley wasn’t in the path of totality, it was still pretty cool to see (with protective eyewear, of course).

Not ones to miss a historic news event, Valley News employees gathered out on the lawn to catch a glimpse.

Meanwhile, in Burlington, Seven Days writer and Editor Paul Heintz took to Twitter to document that staff’s viewing party, which was not unlike our own.
