The ‘Great American Eclipse’ as it has been called is to be a truly spectacular event. This much anticipated eclipse is likely to be the most watched, most photographed and most televised astronomical event of a generation. The path of totality will begin in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean then race across no less than 14 states of the USA from West to East plunging the landscape in to darkness for a over 2 minutes. The corridor of the Moon’s shadow will reach over 70 miles in width. Millions of Americans will live within easy reach of the total phase of this eclipse known as totality. Countless numbers of people will be making travel plans across the United States for August 2017.
A rare aspect of this eclipse is that the path of totality occurs over just one country. This is America’s eclipse, a great eclipse for a great nation. The 2017 eclipse also occurs over the planet’s two largest oceans, the Pacific and Atlantic ending a little over 300 miles SSW of Cape Verde.
