The Great American Eclipse

This occurence is particularly rare since it is the first to cover the continental U.S. in 99 years, and the first to stay completely in the U.S. since 1776. Its path of totality will stretch 70 miles wide and ripple through the skies from, you guessed it, Oregon to South Carolina.
