What is a Total Solar Eclipse?

Essentially, it’s when the moon moves right in front of the sun, covering it completely for a very short time. It darkens the whole sky, lets you look right at the sun (but ONLY when it’s completely covered, though – you must use special solar viewing glasses known as “eclipse glasses” whenever the sun isn’t completely eclipsed), and shows you the beautiful corona that surrounds the sun. Stars come out, the horizon glows with a 360-degree sunset, the temperature drops, and day turns into night. It’s one of the most beautiful things you can ever see on earth.

To see totality, you MUST be in the “Path of Totality” – which is a thin strip of land stretching from Oregon to South Carolina.  “Close” is not close enough!
