Apparently this is the first total solar eclipse to hit the USA since1979, some 38, or so years ago. the eclipse begins in the north Pacific Ocean, crosses mainland USA from NW to SE, from Oregon to South Carolina, ending in the Atlantic Ocean at sunset.
The maximum duration of totality, some 2 minutes and 40 seconds, occurs in Kentucky State, at Crofton, to the north west of Nashville in Tennessee.
I wish you all a good day on Monday, August 21st in 2017. May you enjoy clear skies that day!
