First coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years

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.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
