Thanks to the Internet, no major event can happen without a slew of snarky tweets and memes popping up. Yesterday, a total solar eclipse was visible from parts of North America for the first time since 1918. And no, the social media sphere did not exert an ounce of chill. Check out the best reactions to the 2017 eclipse below.
President Trump added “looked directly into a solar eclipse despite being warned not to” to his already long list of “accomplishments” this past four weeks.

While the eclipse was regarded by most as a major cosmic event, there were still some folks who weren’t all that excited.

Why is it when the sun blacks out on a Monday afternoon it’s an “amazing natural phenomenon” but when I do it’s a “problem”

The number one rule of eclipses, (obviously unbeknownst to President Trump) is to not look at the sun during an eclipse without protective eyewear. Here are a few safety suggestions from around the Twittersphere.
