I live right outside of Washington D.C and said at 2:42pm is when the eclipse would happened. I go outside and start taking pictures of the eclipse and caught this incredible image of when the total eclipse started (sun, moon and earth) and is happening. You can see the left half of the picture is dark and the right half is not.
