Summary:On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse swept across the U.S.A. The glorious sight of the fully eclipsed sun was visible along a 60-mile-wide path arching from Oregon to South Carolina. Millions of people traveled to this “path of totality” to watch as the moon entirely covered the face of the sun. People in the rest of the country experienced a partial eclipse. For those who couldn't make it to the path, the Exploratorium, with our NASA partners, filmed the event from two different locations and shared it with the world by live stream. Audiences can join us on this website, by mobile phone, or at special events in the museum and other institutions across the globe.
