On August 21st, the United States will experience its first total solar eclipse since February 26, 1979. During this event, all of the continental United States will experience at least a significant partial solar eclipse. Those fortunate enough to live along or travel to the narrow track of totality will experience up to 2 minutes and 40 seconds under the shadow. No matter how you decide to safely view the eclipse, make sure to pick up your gear in advance. To learn more about observing and documenting this epic event, check out our Free Solar Eclipse Primer.
