2017 Total Solar Eclipse, Are You Watching?

The last time there was a total solar eclipse of the sun was 99 years ago on June 8, 1918.

I am too! On tv and the Internet though so clearly, that's not my pic (above, got it from Google images), but I keep peeping outside and the daylight is really different. There's like a gray filter covering the outdoors. It's kind of other worldly.And it's pretty thrilling to watch people across the country who are able to witness this historic event firsthand be SO EXCITED, even just watching it on tv.

August 21, 2017. The total solar eclipse will make a 185-mile-wide shadow across the continental United States from west to east. The previous total solar eclipse was on June 8, 1918 and it crossed the United States from Washington State to Florida. This path is roughly similar to the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse and was the last time totality crossed the nation from the Pacific to the Atlantic. #Science
