We’re NASA scientists. Ask us anything about tomorrow’s total solar eclipse!
Thank you Reddit!
Enjoy the eclipse and please view it safely!
Tomorrow, Aug. 21, all of North America will have a chance to see a partial or total solar eclipse if skies are clear. Along the path of totality (a narrow, 70-mile-wide path stretching from Oregon to South Carolina) the Moon will completely block the Sun, revealing the Sun’s faint outer atmosphere. Elsewhere, the Moon will block part of the Sun’s face, creating a partial solar eclipse.
