Eclipse 2017


"The Great American Eclipse"

On August 21, 2017 was a total solar eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts. Prior to this event, no solar eclipse had been visible across the entire contiguous United States since June 8, 1918. The path of totality touched 14 states, and the rest of the U.S. had a partial eclipse. The eclipse shadow reached land on Oregon coast at 4:05 pm UTC and the total eclipse's land coverage ended along the South Carolina coast at about 6:44 p.m. UTC. I positioned myself North East of Chattanooga, TN in a small town of Delano.
