Out & About: Eclipse watch

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — On Monday, Aug. 21, the 70-mile wide shadow of the moon swept across the U.S.

According to Jimmy Westlake, recently retired astronomy and physics teacher from Colorado Mountain College’s Steamboat Springs campus, who recently wrote “Ultimate Guide to the Great American Eclipse” for the Steamboat Pilot & Today, the last total eclipse of the sun visible from the 48 contiguous states was on Feb. 26, 1979.

Whether you were in the path of totality or not, we asked Steamboat Pilot & Today readers to share the eclipse memories they enjoyed out and about in Steamboat and beyond.
