These Celebs Are Just As Excited About the Solar Eclipse As You Are
Did you get a chance to view the solar eclipse? Everyone on the continent had a different vantage point from which to sneak a peek of the rare total eclipse of the sun that happened today, and photos of the phenomenon are everywhere — including on celebs’ Twitter and Instagram accounts. Considering the last eclipse over North America happened 38 years ago, it’s no wonder people are so caught up in the excitement.
Celebrities are nerding out just like we are, and their reactions on social media prove that they love a good celestial event as much as the rest of us.
Some stars (and NASA) had jokes about the eclipse.
When the eclipse comes I’m going to borrow the special glasses my wife uses when I’m shirtless.
