The Great American Eclipse will take place on Monday August 21, but there will be people all over the world trying to take the ideal picture of the solar event.

March 20, 2034: India will get fortunate at this point of time as it will be able to witness a total solar eclipse, along with Pakistan, China and parts of Africa and the Middle East. Clear skies allowing, of course.

The continental United States will have an wonderful celestial show August 21, a solar eclipse.

Here's what will happen in Statesville, according to NASA: At 1:12 p.m., the moon will begin to cross in front of the sun, and the partial eclipse will begin.

It's these few minutes that are so precious - and what 10 million-plus people are traveling from all over the world to see. This time around, the path of the moon's shadow will hit Nebraska midday on Monday, August 21, 2017. Eclipse cartographers have been hard at work, too: Xavier Jubier's Google Map and Michael Zeiler of's handy web app are also worth investigating.

"We don't want anyone to become what they call an eclipse refugee, which is someone who decided at the spur of the moment to head up to this corner of the state to watch the eclipse and then was either unable to get gas, or all the hotels were sold out, so they're not able to find a place to stay", Dale told WABE.

It's inevitable that people who would otherwise disagree about everything will gather together for the total solar eclipse - some might even weep and howl together in the shadow of the moon. Across the globe, they happen regularly, but in any one spot they can be quite elusive. From mere seconds to over 2 minutes and 35 seconds (depending on where you are in the area) you may see something like this...

Baily's beads recede as the very last rays of sunlight create a brief "diamond ring" flash around the Moon. That signals the start of Second Contact. The moon will slowly and silently creep over the disk of the sun.

Suddenly, in the complete darkness, constellations will appear.

Atkinson explained burning a retina, which can occur if a person looks directly at the sun without protection, is painless. I can't stress this enough...some say it's nearly life see something that odds are you may never see again. Keeping in mind that the earth's orbit fluctuates and the moon's orbit has slight variations every takes a small miracle to get one in your community. Mars and Mercury are also close to the eclipse, though they may be hard to see with the naked eye.
