This infographic should be a notification for you to mark the 21th of August on your calendar. It’s The Great American Eclipse after all! The total phase of this total solar eclipse will be visible from a narrow path spanning all across the USA from the West Coast to the East Coast (see map and local times below), weather permitting. In the surrounding areas, which include all of mainland United States and Canada, the total eclipse 2017 will be a partial solar eclipse.

Regions seeing, at least a partial eclipse as seen in the infographic:

West in Europe, North/East Asia, North/West Africa, North America, Much of South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic. The infographic sums all the basic info someone should have. Or you could try dwelving into space things even further.
