2017 Total Solar Eclipse
eclipse2017.nasa.gov Live video streams available on 8/21/17
This celestial event is a solar eclipse in which the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location. For this eclipse, the longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path will be about two minutes and 40 seconds. The last time the contiguous US saw a total eclipse was in 1979.
Some in the U.S. will be able to see a total solar eclipse, where the moon will completely cover the sun. The “path of totality”, shown on the map below, stretches from Oregon to South Carolina. Those outside the path will still see a partial eclipse, where the moon will cover a portion of the sun. This total solar eclipse is fully visible in Cookeville, and Center Hill Campground has an even better view. This is a rare and spectacular event that can only be fully experienced along a relatively narrow strip (about 70 miles wide) on the Earth's surface.
