MONROE - Residents of Monroe and beyond gathered in front of the Monroe Public Library to witness an eclipse of the sun Monday. Using light-filtering eclipse glasses distributed by library officials, attendees glimpsed a sun mostly obscured by the moon as cloud cover dispersed. After the eclipse's peak at about 1:15 p.m., some attendees shared their thoughts on the event.
