KENTUCKY (8/11/17) TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE: LIVE FROM THE U.S.A.

On August 21, 2017, beginning at 10:15 a.m. PDT, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the United States. The glorious sight of the fully eclipsed Sun will be visible along a 70-mile-wide path arching from Oregon to South Carolina. Millions of people are expected to travel to this “path of totality” to watch as the moon entirely covers the face of the Sun.

People not in the path will experience a partial eclipse. For those who can't make it to the path, the Exploratorium, along with our NASA partners, will be filming the event from two different locations and sharing it with the world by live stream. You can watch it live on this website and on our free Android and iOS app​s, or come to the Exploratorium and join us for a special eclipse-day program.

Eclipe path

To view the 2017 total solar eclipse, you’ll have to be somewhere within the light brown stripe stretching across the United States on this map. This “path of totality,” where the darkest part of the moon’s shadow hits the Earth, is only 60 miles wide. North American viewers outside that band will see a partial eclipse.

The eclipse will hit land on the coast of Oregon at 10:15 a.m. PDT. It will sweep across the country, touching Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina before ending its land passage and heading out to sea just after 4:00 p.m. EDT.
