The most dramatic astronomical event to happen this 2017 as far as human beings living in North America are concerned.

Total solar eclipse is a visual experience that comes once in a lifetime so most people will probably travel long distances to see it. Well this time and this one happening in August 21 from 10:15 to 2:45 will have unprecedented access because it will happen over land, the United States.

People in Oregon (10:15), Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, North and South Carolina (2:45) will see the total solar eclipse. A corridor 110 kilometer wide across the United States will provide the most spectacular view for people who want to see sun’s corona. People outside this corridor will still see the solar eclipse in decreasing magnitude.
