One of the biggest and best solar eclipses, in American history, happens on August 21st. This
will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States, in 38 years.

Find a nice, clear spot with a good view of the sky.

You can watch the eclipse with special eclipse glasses. NEVER look directly at the sun without
appropriate eye wear. Regular sunglasses are not safe to view the eclipse.

The total eclipse, when the sun is completely blocked by the moon, will last up to 2 minutes
and 40 seconds, depending on your location.

After the 2017 solar eclipse, the next total solar eclipse visible over the continental United
States will be on April 8, 2024.

A solar eclipse happens when the
moon casts a shadow on Earth, fully
or partially blocking the sun's light in
some areas. A solar eclipse can only
take place during a new moon. Only
people in a small area on Earth,
were the moon’s shadow falls, can
see a total solar eclipse.
