EXPERIENCE OUR TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

The 2017 Greatest Point of Duration

The August 21, 2017 eclipse will travel 2,500 miles across the United States of America in an estimated 70 mile wide path, beginning its journey in Oregon, crossing 12 states, and ending at the Atlantic Ocean off the shore of South Carolina. NASA will be streaming the eclipse live from Carbondale, one of the designated sweet spots within the path of totality.

Carbondale is only a few miles north from the point of greatest duration. At approximately 1:20 p.m. CDT on August 21, 2017, you can experience the total solar eclipse for 2 minutes and 38 seconds!
