GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Faces were fixed toward the sun as Greenville fell under complete darkness for a few short minutes on Monday.

Tons of viewers migrated to Falls Park in downtown Greenville to feast their eyes on the highly-anticipated total solar eclipse.

A large crowd of onlookers could be heard and seen cheering as the eclipse reached totality, and the park was swallowed in darkness mid-afternoon.

The City of Greenville posted a time-lapse video of the event on their Facebook page:
