Patrick Mahomes is the master of clutch plays and proved that once again during the rare solar eclipse on Monday.

Like millions of Americans, the Kansas City Chiefs star witnessed the rare event which plunged a stretch of North America into complete darkness as the moon passed between the sun and Earth.

it was the first total solar eclipse visible in North America since 2017 and Patrick’s wife Brittany captured her family’s reaction before posting it to social media.

Mahomes was joined by daughter Sterling, 3, as the pair wore eye protection and stared up at the sun in order to get a glimpse of the breathtaking natural phenomenon.

Bronze, the couples’ fifteen-month-old son, could be seen in the background looking pretty disinterested by the whole event.

“I see the moon!” Sterling says in the clip before Patrick shared his immediate reaction to the event.

Fortunately, it was only for a brief moment and the Mahomes family were able to see the funny side.

“Don’t look, Sterling,” Brittany said while laughing.

According to NASA, people shouldn’t look at the eclipse even through a camera lens, phone, binoculars or telescope, even while wearing eclipse glasses.

The solar rays can burn through the lens and cause serious eye injury.

Afterwards, the Chiefs signal caller took to social media himself to post a picture of Sterling wearing the protective eye-wear with the caption, “Mood”, followed by a crying laughter emoji.

“That was crazy not going to lie,” he added along with an eclipse emoji.

Millions of people across the US, Mexico and Canada stood outside on Monday to gaze at the solar eclipse.

Solar eclipses occur every one to three years across the globe but are much rarer in the US, with the next one set to occur in North America in 2044.

According to weather reports, the Kansas City metro area is very close to the path of totality, which allowed residents like the Mahomes family to see about 90% coverage, which occurred for them around 2:00pm local time.
