On Monday, August 21st, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Those within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse.
This path where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere known as the corona can be seen from Oregon to South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk.
NASA created this website to provide a guide to this amazing event. Here you will find activities, events, broadcasts, and resources from NASA and our partners across the nation.
