An Incredible Major Solar Eclipse Is Coming to America, Here's Where to See It

On August 21, the entire US will be treated to the first total eclipse since 1979!

Since it’s been an uber long time since the last solar eclipse, this special celestial event is something you really want to mark your calendar for.

So what’s this all about then? When the sun, the moon and the Earth all align perfectly, the sun’s light is blocked out completely. This solar line up creates a luminous ring, which us mere mortals see around our very own moon.

If you’re one of those lucky Americans who happens to live close enough to the solar eclipse path, then it’s about time you start planning your perfect celestial road trip. The epic path runs all the way from South Carolina to Oregon—oh, and just a word of warning, if you miss this one, you’ll have to wait a whole ten years to see the next one.

Ditch your usual weekend plans and prepare to experience something absolutely out of this world. Here’s just a few of the best places to catch it:
