LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- For those that didn't make the trek to Hopkinsville to see the total solar eclipse Monday, the WDRB News viewing part at the Kentucky State Fair drew quite a crowd.

From a camera with a solar filter, you can see the solar eclipse from the fairgrounds, showing the sliver of the sun that was left in Louisville.

It got a little darker and cooler, and people had a chance to ask University of Louisville scientists and WDRB meteorologists about the eclipse. 

"It's pretty cool," said Carly Wheat, who came out to watch at the fair. "I haven't seen anything quite like this before."

People were even on fair rides during the eclipse, giving them a unique view.

Check out a slideshow above of photos from Hopkinsville, Louisville and everywhere in between.
