Upcoming Total Solar Eclipses
The Great American Eclipse | Total Solar Eclipse | August 21, 2017
The Great American Eclipse is a total solar eclipse that has not been seen in the United States since 1979. This eclipse will make landfall in Oregon on August 21, 2017 and exit the U.S. off the coast of South Carolina. The eclipse will occur between 4-6PM UT, with a complete eclipse of 02 minutes 40 seconds at 37°38′12′′N 89°15′24′′W in the Shawnee National Forest, just south of Carbondale, Illinois.
A partial solar eclipse will be visible from the much broader path of the Moon's penumbra, including all of North America and parts of South America, Western Europe, and Africa. For most Americans and visitors to the U.S., this will be the eclipse event of a lifetime!
