Those with protective eclipse viewing glasses were able to safely watch as the moon hid just over 80 percent of the sun.
While some watched on TV or streaming video, plenty of our readers were outside to capture the moment. Even some clouds floating around could not spoil the view.
We compiled photos of the eclipse in Arlington as shared on Twitter, below. Did you take any photos around Arlington during the eclipse? Show them off in the comments.
And some good news: there were no emergency calls in Arlington reporting eye issues from looking directly at the eclipse, based on scanner traffic this afternoon.
