On Aug. 21, 2017, a Total Solar Eclipse will be visible across the United States in totality and will be partially visible in other countries. The sun will disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into darkness and temperature drops rapidly.
The solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between Earth and the Sun, causing totally obscuring the sun from the Earth. During this time, the disk of the Moon blocks out the last sliver of light from the Sun, turning the Sun’s outer atmosphere (the Corona) becomes visible.
The path of totality will touch 14 states including Oregon to South Carolina, which passes through Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North and South Carolina.
The last time a total solar eclipse was visible across the United States was June 8, 1918.
