Folks living in the Pacific Northwest got a rare chance to see the annular eclipse of the sun Saturday morning. While some may have slept in and missed it, others set their alarms and got their cameras ready to capture the celestial event!
Looking at the FOX Weather map at the top of this article, you can see the path of the eclipse. For the Pacific Northwest, those with the best chance of seeing a total eclipse were in the southwestern portion of Oregon. Those living in Washington state saw a partial eclipse - beginning at 9:13 a.m. Regardless, the photos are amazing.

"The clouds made for a great filter for viewing the solar eclipse from my place here in Vancouver," said photographer Angie Vogel. "We only got about 86% up here, but it was really cool to watch it."
