On Monday, August 21, 2017, the universe will reveal itself in an epic show more astonishing than anything ever devised by the magic of Hollywood or Disney. The Sun, Mother Nature’s multi-gigaton, 24/7 nuclear inferno in the sky, is going to put on a show. This will be the first US coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years, placing totality within an over-night drive of 320 million Americans.

This is the most complete guide to the 2017 eclipse that is available. It includes everything you need to plan a successful viewing experience, with dozens of tips from veteran eclipse chasers:

* Where to see the eclipse and instructions on how to observe it safely.
* Over seventy high-quality photographs, diagrams, detailed maps and tables.
* Simple explanations for how it all works, including the corona, Baily’s beads, the diamond ring and more.
* What gear to take, including eye safety filters, binoculars, and how to get the best pictures from your camera or smartphone.

The shadow of totality will carve a 2,527 mile path across U.S. territory–never touching land in any foreign country–making it the first ever “All American” Total Solar Eclipse. Beyond this narrow shadow of totality–about 60 miles wide–everyone else in the continental US will see a partial solar eclipse. This promises to be the most viewed and photographed eclipse in human history.

Viewing a total solar eclipse is an emotional experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list. In 2017 the eclipse will occur in our collective “backyard,” an ideal time to take loved ones on an adventure of a lifetime.
