    Solar Eclipse Reaches Totality

    Watch as the sun is completely obscured by the moon in this clip of Monday's solar eclipse.

    (Published Monday, Aug. 21, 2017)

    Millions of people across the country are gathering for the first total solar eclipse to sweep the U.S. coast-to-coast in nearly a century.

    To see a total eclipse, where the moon fully covers the sun for a short few minutes, you must be in the path of totality. The path of totality is a relatively thin ribbon — around 70 miles wide — that will cross the U.S. from west to east.

    The New York region will be experiencing a partial eclipse, or “penumbra.” Even though we won't get the full phenomenon in the tri-state area, it's still expected to be a spectacle. 

    NASA put together this handy interactive map to show viewing times, from start time to peak to the finale, across the country. Click your location on the map to see the best times near you.
