Total Solar Eclipse: Minus One Week

Total Solar Eclipse


Just a week before the "Great American Eclipse", so are you excited? Or confused? Everyone knows a solar eclipse occurs when our moon slips between the Earth and the Sun.

The Sun, Moon and Earth line up perfectly on Monday August 21! So perfectly that you can witness a total solar eclipse across the USA.

The eclipse lasts for over two hours but total darkness lasts for only a couple of minutes. The exact length depends on your location.

Why is this eclipse so special?? Didn't we just have a solar eclipse a few years ago? Actually the last total solar eclipse visible in the USA happened 38 years ago. You only get a few chances to see them in your entire lifetime.  So it's worth a trip to a spot where the total eclipse is visible, somewhere on this narrow path across the USA from coast to coast.
