Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017time lapse view of Sun during a solar eclipse

On Monday, August 21, the Moon will slowly slide across the face of the Sun in an afternoon solar eclipse. The darkest part of the Moon's shadow will race across the US starting with the northwest of Oregon down to the southeast of South Carolina. People along this line will see the Moon completely cover the Sun in a total eclipse. Those not in the deepest shadow will see a partial eclipse, with the Moon covering part of the Sun, and the farther they are from the shadow the less of the Sun they will see covered.  Everyone in the country is getting geared up for this Great American Solar Eclipse.
