August 21, 2017 -- For the first time in almost a century, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the U.S., plunging a strip 113km wide into darkness. Outside the path of totality, skywatchers elsewhere in North America and northern South America will experience a partial eclipse.

More than 12 million Americans live inside the path of totality and 200m within one day’s drive of it. Anyone within the path of totality will see the sky become dark for several minutes as the moon completely covers the sun. The path is around 70 miles wide, and stretches from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.
