YONKERS -

Hundreds of spectators flocked to the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers Monday afternoon to watch the moon blot out the sun.

Some waited on line for about three hours to get a glimpse of the eclipse with a telescope.  

The museum also offered free workshops, including one on building a pinhole projector to see the eclipse.

"It was really fun because I've never seen it. I wish it was once a year, every year," says Dylan McGowan, who made his own pinhole projector at the museum.
