Flocks of people gathered at Westcott Beach State Park, located at the eastern end of Lake Ontario in the United States, to watch the solar eclipse on Monday afternoon. 

A total solar eclipse swept across North America on Monday, as residents and visitors gathered in different locations on the path of the eclipse to watch and cheer. 

The total solar eclipse -- nicknamed the Great American Eclipse for its long path over North America -- was visible in the sky over parts of Mexico, 15 U.S. states and eastern Canada. 

The Mexican city of Mazatlán was the first place to see the total solar eclipse as it emerged over the Pacific Ocean on Monday. 

Totality reached Mazatlán at 11:07 a.m. Pacific Time, and lasted for a little more than four minutes.
