A crowd of spectators at the Shelby County Public Library check out the solar eclipse Monday.
Moving experience

The excitement in Shelby County mounted steadily on Monday as the countdown to the solar eclipse reached a crescendo at 1 p.m.

People could be seen just about everywhere outdoors, getting ready to witness the once-in-a lifetime event.

They stood on street corners, sprawled on blankets on lawns, arranged comfortable chairs in the shade of a tree or even peered out from windows and doorways.

Some business, such as Roll Forming, held solar eclipse parties featuring sun-themed snacks such as Mars and Milky Way candy bars.
