On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will have a solar eclipse. The Moon will cover at least part of the Sun for 2 to 3 hours. Halfway through, anyone within a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina will experience a brief total eclipse. The Moon will completely block the Sun’s bright face for up to 2 minutes 40 seconds. Day will turn into night, and (weather permitting) one of nature’s most awesome sights will become visible: the Sun’s shimmering outer atmosphere, or corona. If you’re like most Americans, this is your first eclipse. Here’s a whole bunch of information that we’ve collected to help you better understand everything there is to know about this amazing show of nature.
Here’s a great overview of the eclipse from the American Astronomical Society.
