On Aug. 21, 2017, most of North America will witness one of nature’s greatest events – an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality (from Lincoln Beach, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina) can see a total solar eclipse. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse.
