While today's big celestial event is exciting, it is not the first time Arizona has been in the path of a solar eclipse.
In fact, some 200 years ago, Arizona was in the path of totality for a total solar eclipse on June 16, 1806.
The Arizona Department of Transportation posted a photo to Twitter that illustrate the past eclipse's path.

If only Arizona was a state back then!
Today's eclipse will be partial for us Arizonans, reaching 62.9 percent obscuration at 10:33 a.m. in Phoenix Monday.
