Monday was a day that held an experience some may never see again in their lifetime.
At Macon's Museum of Arts and Sciences, anticipation for this day was like Christmas morning.
"Well, I got up at 4:30 this morning and I just, it was like Santa was coming. I'm very excited and I know the rest of the staff is, too," Sheri Singleton, Communications Coordinator at the Museum said.
The museum offered crafts and activities for kids to learn about the celestial circumstance. It's the kids who Singleton says she hopes to inspire most.
"It's our responsibility to nurture that and really just get it going for them. They're already there, all we have to do is nudge just a little bit."
And Houston, we didn't have a problem doing that.
"At first, I thought it was going to be a blast, but then it was an extra blast," Fourth grader Bella said.
But it was a blast that had third grader Eli concerned.
"It was our first solar eclipse and we don't know if we are gonna live long enough to see another one."
Nonetheless, everyone had a totality good time.
