There’s no telling how many people assembled in the Upstate to observe the solar eclipse.

Greer City Park, Fluor Field and Liberty Park in Greenville, Clemson, Furman, North Greenville University and USC Upstate were among large venues that hosted events. The Greenville Drive paused its game at 2:25 p.m. to allow spectators and players to observe the eclipse.

Each venue reported loud cheers when totality was reached when the moon covered the sun. It was an eerie sight to observe darkness about 2:38 in the Upstate. Many offices and business had their lights turned on briefly.

Justin Baustert photographed the solar eclipse in Greer. He was asked to describe how he focused on the eclipse and describe his camera and settings.

• Nikon D7200 55-200mm lens with a Hoya 5.0ND Solar Filter for all partial photos. 28-300mm lens no filter for total photos. Used my cameras live view to protect my eyes and shot at the settings of Shutter Speed 1/800th Aperture F11 ISO 1100. The hardest part was finding and focusing on the sun.
