When Exactly Will You See the Eclipse?

If you’re as excited as I am about the upcoming eclipse, you should definitely check out this map!

On Monday, August 21st of 2017–less than two weeks away–many Americans will be able to experience a total solar eclipse.

And people are going bananas about it.

The first total eclipse since 1918. 1918!

Before World War I ended.

Before the national amendment that brought suffrage to all women.

Before the Depression. The Good War.

We’ll probably have to wait just as long for the next one — so make sure you see it this month.

How do you make sure you won’t miss it?

Just take a look at this interactive map:
