On August 21, 2017 the Sun will disappear and will blackout 14 states of America. No, it is not any apocalypse forecast! It is the phenomenal phenomena called Solar Eclipse, which is roughly 100 days away from today and this is the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse after 99 years.
NASA is officially counting down days as the Great American Solar Eclipse 2017 is less than 100 days away. This is the first time since 1991 that a total solar eclipse will be visible from the United States. During that eclipse, the only state viewers could see the blackened sun in was Hawaii but the view was disrupted by very-typical Hawaiian cloudy weather. The eclipse is expected to be visible across a 70-mile band which stretched from Lincoln Beach to Oregon to Charleston to South Carolina.
During the solar eclipse, the sun will be completely blocked by moon, leaving just the pearly white rays of its illusive corona which will be visible through naked eye. But the full-bang solar eclipse will only be momentary as the longest duration of the sun being covered will be less than 3 minutes. So to make sure that you don’t miss out the rare event, be prepared and be acknowledged about what time the eclipse will pass through your city. You definitely don’t want to miss the chance because the next time one such solar eclipse might occur, most of us won’t he here to watch it.
For a swath of the country from Portland, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, it will look like someone just turned off the sun in the middle of the day. And even if you are elsewhere in North America, you’ll be able to see the partial eclipse. Space enthusiasts are already starting to get excited about the eclipse and some, like us, are counting down the days. Many are booking hotels for the big moment, while others have had their rooms booked for years.
