People from around the world converged on Missouri to watch the solar eclipse.
Among the crowd that gathered Monday at the Missouri Capitol were husband and wife David Colon and Mariana Perez, from Alajuela, Costa Rica. They flew along with his brother to Oklahoma, where their mother lives, and then drove as a family to Jefferson City.
They said the long trip was well worth it.
As the total eclipse faded, Perez said: "It's amazing — I mean, God is amazing."
