Animation of the shadow across the United States.
The little black dot must pass directly over you, in order for you to see totality!

"Close" is NOT close enough!!

(Notice how the path touches no land except for the mainland United States?  That is much rarer than you might think!)


But how do you know where to go on eclipse day?

First, get the eclipse2017.org app!


This is the simplest way to find out if you are IN THE PATH on eclipse day, and to learn the times of the eclipse in your location.


Make sure the weather is clear!


We've also made pages for EVERY community in the path!   Find your place in the shadow by visiting them!
(And you'll find great weather links on every page!)

We would encourage everyone to please read all the information you can on this site first (especially "What is an Eclipse?"), so you can get a feel for what's going to happen. Other great information is contained on the 2017 eclipse links page. Truly, this is an event not to be missed, and it is our hope that every person - but especially every American - who is capable of getting into the path will enjoy this wonderful treat!
