Countdown to the 2017 Solar Eclipse



On August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses the United States of America. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in the northern Pacific and crosses the USA from west to east through parts of: Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering most of North America.

Warning: To watch a solar eclipse, you will need eye protection for safety. Check out our Store to purchase ASKC branded solar eclipse glasses.
