On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun.  The last time an eclipse traveled across the entire country was in 1918. While lunar eclipses (moon) happen more often, as do partial solar eclipses, this event is of astronomical significance.


What Is an Eclipse?  An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when an astronomical object is temporarily obscured, either by passing into the shadow of another body or by having another body pass between it and the viewer.


On Monday, August 21,2017 a total solar eclipse will be visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States. The Eclipse will only be visible in other countries as a partial eclipse.


The eclipse's path of totality will be coast-to-coast in the USA, mostly visible throughout Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. 

You will get to see darkness at day time that looks like nighttime. A very interesting event, especially when the sky is clear… with no clouds.

Our country's next opportunity to see a total solar eclipse comes in fewer than seven years, on April 8, 2024. This will be another major event for the United States, but we don’t know how big it will be.


Enjoy, don’t forget to put dark sunglasses on you.  You can’t look at the sky without protection… It is dangerous to the degree of being blind.
