Next Solar Eclipse of the Sun Will Happen on August 21
According to the Detroit Free Press, the first total solar eclipse to take place in the continental U.S. since 1979 is coming this summer.
Sky Gazers from around the world are planning trips to a roughly 70 mile wide stretch of the country where the celestial spectacle can be seen in all its glory.
The path will run through parts of 14 states, from Oregon to South Carolina. On August 21, the solar eclipse will last from 2 minutes to 2 minutes, 40 seconds, depending on where you go.
