SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — One of the most anticipated events in history has come to an end.

Eclipse 2017 sent the shadow of the moon across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina.

Northeastern Pennsylvania may not have been in the direct path of Monday’s solar eclipse, but that didn’t stop people here from looking up!

If you had to work during the eclipse, a study found that American employers were expected to lose nearly $700-million in lost productivity.

But people Eyewitness News talked to said it was worth taking a few minutes out of their day to appreciate one of nature’s greatest spectacles.

If you didn’t get a chance to take a safe glance at the sun, you’ll have to wait until April 8, 2024!

If you still have a pair of eclipse glasses, an organization wants you to donate them.  Astronomers Without Borders will collect the shades and send them to South American and Asian schools, where the next solar eclipse will take place in 2019.
