First Solar Eclipse Visible to the United States Since 1918

Categories:

On August 21, 2017, the first total solar eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States will occur and is being described as “The Great American Eclipse.” A solar eclipse can often be viewed as a momentary period of darkness, but it is actually a brief, glorious sight of the sun’s pure white-corona. The last time that an eclipse of this type occurred was June 8, 1918 and the next time this will be seen is 2045. The total eclipse will be visible in ten states: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Those who are outside of this area will all be able to see a partial eclipse. Towns and cities are preparing for this moment in history with festivals, watch sites, and supplies in these states.
