Phoenix got only a partial eclipse view yesterday, but we were totally excited about it.

The big picture: Morning clouds parted in time for a nice clear view of the moon's passage in front of the sun.

Zoom in: Hundreds of locals and lots of Final Four visitors gathered outside the Arizona Science Center to see the spectacle.

Mark your calendar: The next total solar eclipse to span the U.S. will occur in 2045.

  • Phoenix won't be in the path of totality, but we'll get another cool partial eclipse.
