President Donald Trump took in the solar eclipse from the Truman
Balcony of the White House on Monday.

Sporting eclipse glasses — only for part of the viewing — and
standing alongside Melania Trump and their son Barron, Trump
viewed what was a partial eclipse in Washington, DC. The partial
eclipse began at 1:17 p.m., peaked at 2:42 p.m., and was set to
end at 4:01 p.m. ET, The Washington Post
. The moon covered 81% of the sun at the eclipse’s
peak in Washington.

Trump, at one point, did look up at the eclipse without wearing
the glasses, which could be extremely harmful to a person’s
eyesight. According to a White House pool report, one of Trump’s
aides shouted “don’t look” when Trump initially came out and
pointed at the sky.

Much of the nation focused on the Monday event, the first total
eclipse to cross the country in nearly a century. The path of
totality, where the moon fully eclipsed the sun, stretched from
Oregon to South Carolina, but much of the rest of the country was
able to view at least a partial eclipse of the sun.
