While we just missed a total eclipse Monday, the consensus among Washingtonians polled was that the 81 percent partial eclipse was “very cool.”

“In Woodley Park, with my eclipse glasses, it was amazing,” Capital Weather Gang reader Barbara Stein said. “When I was at National Zoo an eclipsed glassed little boy, apparently visiting from Italy, cried ‘bellisomo’ and I agree.”

“I loved every minute of it!” reader KJ Jacks exclaimed.

During and after the eclipse, we received scores of beautiful images documenting the event. Here we feature our favorite 20 and thank all of you who shared images.
