Hundreds of people gathered outside their offices across downtown Vancouver to watch the partial eclipse.

For many it was the first time.
Much of the downtown core took on a block party feeling, as people gathered and shared their glasses and viewing boxes.
Some found inventive ways to watch the eclipse.
Others found creative ways to photograph the sun with welder's glass and get a cool new profile pic.
