A total solar eclipse is unlike anything you've seen in your life. As totality approaches, you will see the astonishing sight of day turning to night and the Sun's corona blazing in the sky. An eclipse is a cosmic billiard shot - the Sun, Moon, and Earth line up to reveal the Sun's atmosphere, it's corona. Eclipses on Earth occur only because of an amazing celestial coincidence. In 2017 it will have been 26 years since the last American total solar eclipse. Totality visited the USA in 1905, 1918, 1932, 1945, 1963, 1970, 1972, 1979, and 1991.
