Total Solar Eclipse 2017
Monday, 21 Aug 2017
Look up your
location to see what the eclipse will be like there!
We have listed here all of the
small towns and cities in the path, as well as some larger cities
the country, to show the local circumstances for the eclipse
from these locations.
Not only are towns listed, but also airports,
newpaper and TV/radio stations, astronomy clubs,
government agencies, city governments, town councils, state parks, and
about anywhere we could think of that might be of interest in
giving out the circumstances of the eclipse!
You can go here to visit Xavier Jubier's Interactive Google Map.
link will take you to a map of the US. Zoom in and click on any
location to see the local times and circumstances for the eclipse!
Go here to read why there are different durations of
totality at different places in the path.
Select the state whose
locations you'd like to see, to see the circumstances of the eclipse at
STATES WITH TOTALITY
*IA and MT are
listed below because, even though totality touches these
two states (barely),
no populated areas in them will see the full
Some states are
not listed because of the combination of a couple of things: their
from the path, lack of large cities/newspapers/universities with astronomy
We apologize for the omissions - nothing
If your state isn't listed as having totality, you must get to one of the states that is!
This is very important; even if you see that where you are is going to get a 96% partial eclipse, you should get to the path and see a TOTAL eclipse! Yes, a deep partial eclipse is interesting, and it'll get a little dark, and lots of the effects will show up for you -- but you won't get the REAL picture, and you won't be able to look at the beauty of a TOTALLY eclipsed sun!
If you were hungry, and you were taken to the most magnificent restaurant, where the most wonderful smells were coming out of the kitchen, and you were seated at the table in anticipation of a great meal - and all you got to do was smell the cooking while those around got to eat the actual food -- well, that's about what a 96% partial eclipse is like.
GET TO THE PATH!!!!
