2017 August 21 -- Finally, another total eclipse in the United States. This one sweeps a 70-mile wide path from Salem, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, crossing coast-to-coast from mid-morning to early afternoon on this summer Monday. Points in the path include Mt. Jefferson in the Cascades and Grand Teton peak in the Rockies, as well as Casper, Wyoming, and Lincoln, Nebraska. In Missouri, Kansas City lies near the southern edge of the path, St. Louis near the northern edge. The eclipse reaches its maximum in western Kentucky, with the Sun at an altitude of 64 degrees and a duration of totality of 2 minutes 40 seconds. In Tennessee, Nashville is near the southern edge of the path, Knoxville near the northern edge. The shadow then passes over Greenville, Columbia, and Charleston, South Carolina, before racing out across the Atlantic.
