The last coast to coaster--total eclipse from one coast to the other--was in 1918.

In that long period of time taking a snap has changed as shown byWaPo's Armand Emamdjomeh and Dense Lu who "took more than 44,000 geolocated Instagram photos uploaded with the hashtag #eclipse2017 during the eclipse’s route over the United States and grouped them by latitude and longitude."

They selected the most liked entries and put them into a graphic which you may click on. I'm not sure what these data "say" but the entries are fun to view and read.  You may be surprised--I was--by the  coverage up and down and across the United States. In addition they created a bar graph of time of submission of the entries by one-minute intervals.

Take a look (and thank them for their work which they completed the day of the eclipse!).
