Unique Solar Eclipse
Many will be treated to a rare visual delight on August 21 as the total solar eclipse will be visible from the contiguous United States. This is the first time that the path of totality of the eclipse spans from coast to coast and it won't happen again until 2045. The event is a must-see with as many as 20 million people slated to convene in the path of totality, which runs through cities like Portland, St. Louis and Charleston.
Today we'll be talking about the eclipse, the sun and the moon.
