    A total solar eclipse moved from coast to coast across the United States on Monday.

    It was the first time an eclipse crossed most of the country, since 1979.

    The event was likely to be the most photographed and most studied eclipse in history.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Casper, Wyoming.
