Greenville, SC – Millions of people have made plans to travel to the United States in anticipation of a total eclipse of the sun (when the moon passes in front of the sun and causes a state of total darkness in the middle of the day). This event will occur on August 21, 2017.

It’s such a rare event, astronomically speaking, that people from all over the world have decided to come to the United States, and more specifically South Carolina, in order that they will be able to observe something that has not happened here since 1979. The 2017 event marks the first total solar eclipse in the continental US in 38 years.

Check out the path of totality (complete darkness) below:
