Here are Twitter's best reactions to the 2017 solar eclipse

From serious to silly, people were in a sharing mood on Monday

The 2017 solar eclipse, possibly the most anticipated event of the year, came and went on Monday with a heavy dose of excitement, wonder, fear and humor.

Society's gaze was fixed on the heavens, hopefully with NASA-approved glasses or a makeshift contraption, as the moon passed between the sun and large swath of observers here on earth.

From around the world, buzz and jokes about the eclipse poured in on Twitter. Let's take a look at the best of what was shared on Monday (Read the Donald Trump-only edition here).ย
