Some Information on Today's Solar Eclipse in North America

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun.
Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse.
This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona -
can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will
still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.

All of the U.S. will be treated to at least a partial eclipse, but viewers in the aptly named “path of totality,”
a 60- to 70-mile-wide strip of land cutting across the country, will experience a total eclipse, resulting in two
minutes of darkness in the middle of the day. The eclipse will enter Oregon at 10:15 a.m. PT and exit South
Carolina at 2:50 p.m. ET, touching on 14 states along the way.

This year’s eclipse will be the first one to cross the entire continental U.S. since 1918.  The last total solar
eclipse viewed from contiguous United States was on February 26, 1979 whose path passed through the
northwestern U.S. states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Canadian provinces
of Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. After the August 2017 total solar eclipse, the next annular
solar eclipse that can be seen in the continental United States will be on October 14, 2023 which will be
visible from Northern California to Florida. Following this, we will have a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024
visible from Texas to Maine.
