For the 1st time in nearly 100 Years, millions of Americans coast-to-coast Will see an eclipse

By  | 

(NASA) -- On August 21, 2017, daylight will fade to the level of a moonlit night as millions of Americans experience one of nature’s most awe-inspiring shows – a total solar eclipse.

For the first time since 1918, the dark shadow of the moon will sweep coast-to-coast across the United States, putting 14 states in the path of totality and providing a spectacular view of a partial eclipse across all 50 states.

A solar eclipse happens when a rare alignment of the sun and moon casts a shadow on Earth.
