Solar Eclipse Map: See State-by-State Maps in Path of Totality



The map above, provided by NASA, shows the path of totality for today’s solar eclipse, as it moves across the continental United States from Oregon to South Carolina. For about two hours, the eclipse will progress across the United States from coast-to-coast, crossing a 70-mile path where people will be able to see the moon completely block out the sun for about two minutes in the middle of the day.

The total solar eclipse can be seen Monday, August 21 at 9:06 a.m. PDT in Madras, Oregon, 10:15 a.m. MDT in Idaho Falls, 11:37 a.m. CDT in Lincoln, Nebraska, 11:46 a.m. CDT in Jefferson City, Missouri, 11:58 a.m. CDT in Nashville, and 1:13 p.m. EDT in Columbia, South Carolina, just to name a few of the cities it will be passing over.

Here’s a YouTube video that explains how to understand the map above:

If you’d prefer to use an interactive map, NASA has one here. Here’s a screenshot of NASA’s interactive map below, which may be a little easier to interpret:


Over 100 minutes’ time, 14 states will have a total eclipse: darkness in the middle of the day. Other areas nearby will experience a partial eclipse. You won’t have long to watch the eclipse: it will only last a couple minutes, even in areas of totality.

This eclipse is the first time in 99 years that the continental United States has had an opportunity to see a total eclipse from coast to coast.
