The United States will experience the first total solar eclipse from coast-to-coast in 99 years.
With the exception of Alaska and Hawaii, every state will see at least a partial eclipse. But a total eclipse will be visible over a wide area that will start on the Oregon Coast at 10:17 a.m. PDT and end 93 minutes later at the South Carolina coast.
Total darkness along the span of the path will vary slightly and will last roughly two minutes.
Massive traffic jams are expected throughout the U.S. with people stopping to see the eclipse.
