A total solar eclipse will be visible across the United States on August 21, 2017. In this video, NASA’s Ernie Wright explains the visualization he created of the eclipse's path across the country.
In this visualization, data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter account for the moon's terrain that creates a jagged edge on its shadow. This data is then combined with elevation data on Earth as well as information on the sun angle to create the most accurate map of the eclipse path to date.
The Eclipse Megamovie 2017 is an animation that shows how the sun and moon will interact at different locations. Input the town where you plan to watch the eclipse, and remember that I'll be in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. You can study an eclipse map for your state here.
If you can get to eastern Oregon, Atlas Obscura is throwing a two-day eclipse watching party.
