On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. We will be able to see one of nature's most awe-inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the Corona - can be seen. The first partial eclipse will begin at 11:46am. The full eclipse will begin at 12:48pm.
