Photos: The solar eclipse in central New York

Aug 21, 2017

It happened. The solar eclipse made its way across central and northern New York today. The moon covered around 60 percent of the sun this afternoon. And while the skies didn't go dark and nocturnal animals didn't come out to see what all the fuss was about, many were enjoying the partial eclipse.

Jason Smith, our morning host, was able to capture the eclipse through his camera, with a filter.

Reporter Tom Magnarelli stopped by the Rosamond Gifford Zoo for their solar eclipse viewing party.

Many others craned their necks to see the eclipse (with special eye protection, of course) across the Syracuse-area.
