A total solar eclipse will cross the continental US on Monday, August 21, 2017. Everyone in the U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse — but you have to be within the “path of totality” to experience the full effect. The path of totality is a gentle 70-mile-wide arc that crosses 13 states, shown in green on our map. There are hundreds of places to camp along the path, and Read more...

A total solar eclipse will cross the continental US on Monday, August 21, 2017. Everyone in the U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse — but you have to be within the “path of totality” to experience the full effect. The path of totality is a gentle 70-mile-wide arc that crosses 13 states, shown in green on our map. There are hundreds of places to camp along the path, and we’re partnering with landowners to add new eclipse-viewing campsites every day.

To watch this astronomic phenomenon unfold, station yourself in the path (with a pair of eclipse glasses) around 9am Pacific or 1pm EST, depending on your exact location. The total eclipse itself lasts about a minute, but it’s considered the best chance for us tiny humans to gauge the full scale of the universe firsthand — stellar! Tens of thousands of eclipse viewers are expected to flock to the path of totality to observe it, and for good reason: the next total solar eclipse over the continental U.S. won’t occur until April 8, 2024.
