Videos: Solar eclipse draws a crowd in Boulder

When my family members tried to check out last night's solar eclipse from a spot in Jefferson County, they saw...nothing, due to cloud cover. Those who gathered at CU-Boulder's Folsom Field had better luck, and that's a good thing -- because there were a record-setting 10,000 of them. See video of the scene courtesy of the Boulder Daily Camera, as well as a second video from Boulder, with a time lapse compressing the event to twenty majestic seconds.
