2017 August 21 Eclipse

“August 21, 2017 will mark the first total solar eclipse across the United States in 99 years, and people are getting excited. So excited that hotels and campsites are completely booked — including 30 campsites along the “path of totality” that sold for $60,000 in an online auction.” – Fox News.

Oklahoma to see most of the rare August eclipse

2017 August 21 Eclipse Path

“The path of totality stretches all across the U.S., from the coast of Oregon through Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, far northeast Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and finally leaving the U.S. mainland in South Carolina. The last time we had one that covered this much of the continental U.S. was in 1918. That one was nice for Oklahomans as the path of totality ran halfway between Oklahoma City and Tulsa.” – NewsOK.

“On August 21st, 2017, a solar eclipse will be visible throughout the Western Hemisphere, with a total eclipse passing across the United States. The Planetary Society is partnering with the U.S. National Park Service to celebrate this spectacular celestial event.” – Planetary Society.
