First Total Solar Eclipse In Nearly 100 Years - Will Your City Be In Its Path?

On Monday, August 21st the U.S. will experience a total solar eclipse. It will start in Oregon and make its way across the contiguous United States for the first time in 99 years. The previous time a total solar eclipse was visible across the entire contiguous United States was during the June 8, 1918 eclipse. Anywhere in the country you’ll be able to see this phenomenon. However, only certain areas in the continental U.S. will be able to see the eclipse in full “totality” - the area completely blocked by the sun from the moon - which is only 70 miles wide.


There are 12 states where you’ll be able to see this eclipse in totality - lasting as long as 2 minutes and 41 seconds. We have listed the towns and cities where you’re in the center line for the longest duration within the state. 

Note: Some towns in center line may not be listed. Full list of cities/towns for every state can be found here.

Just remember to grab yourself a pair of special viewing glasses for this remarkable event. It's not safe to stare directly into the sun, even on eclipse day.
