Total solar eclipse map shows what it will look like from wherever you are

- Mark your calendars!  On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun and if you have no idea what it will look like from where you are sitting, NASA has an interactive map for that.

Some will be witness to a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's corona, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.  

It will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the contiguous United States since 1979 and the first one coast to coast since 1918.  Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.

NASA created a website to provide a guide to this amazing event.

This Interactive Map will show you exactly what it will look like from wherever you are, and the times to see it.

Remember: Never look directly into the sun without the proper solar filters.
