As thousands of people -- mostly Penn State students -- filled "Beaver Canyon" late Sunday and early Monday, just about everyone seemed to have a camera handy.

The photo gallery to the right highlights some images captured at the scene by readers. The YouTube video embedded below, shot by Beaver Avenue resident Christopher DeGeorge, gives a vivid perspective on the gathering, as well.

The downtown-State College revelers were jubilant over the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Links to full coverage of the celebration are posted toward the bottom of this page.
