ECLIPSE PARTY! More than 1,400 people gathered at the Nantucket High School baseball diamond Monday afternoon to watch the Great North American Eclipse.

Hosted by The Maria Mitchell Association in collaboration with the Nantucket Public Schools, Nantucket Community School, and Nantucket Boys & Girls Club, the gathering was the largest by far on the island. All public school students received safe eclipse viewing glasses as they were dismissed at the end of the day, and the organizers provided another 300 pairs to those who showed up at the field. Island residents were treated to an 87 percent partial solar eclipse, as Nantucket was close, but not inside the path of totality.

Below are some photos taken by David Creed.
