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.
Go to this site and enter your zip code to see how much of the eclipse you’ll see from where you live!
When I entered my zip code it told me to expect to see 82% of the eclipse from my location and told me the start time and the best time to start watching for it. I did buy eclipse glasses to watch. It’s not recommended to look at it without protecting your eyes.
