Overview Video of the 2017 Eclipse from the Exploratorium

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the United States. The glorious sight of the fully eclipsed Sun will be visible along a 70-mile-wide path arching from Oregon to South Carolina. Millions of people are expected to travel to this “path of totality” to watch as the moon entirely covers the face of the Sun.

People not in the path will experience a partial eclipse. For those who can't make it to the path, the Exploratorium, along with our NASA partners, will be filming the event from two different locations and sharing it with the world by live stream. Audiences can watch live on this website or via our mobile phone app.

At the Exploratorium, join us for a special eclipse-day program.
