Monday, August 21, 2017, 6:41 PM - While Canada was not in the path of totality during the 2017 Solar Eclipse, there was no shortage of stunning photos on social media taken from Canadians across the country.

The path of totality stretched from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina, according to NASA.

Meanwhile, a partial solar eclipse could be seen across North America, along with parts of South America, Africa and Europe.

So, who had the best view of the eclipse in Canada?

Those in Victoria, B.C., were fortunate enough to witness 90 per cent of totality.

Canadians will have to wait until April 8, 2024 for the next total solar eclipse. The path of totality will stretch across southern Ontario and Quebec, central New Brunswick, western P.E.I. and central Newfoundland, The Canadian Press reports.

Here's The Weather Network's selection of best photos taken from the celestial event.
