5 of the best places to see the ‘Great American Eclipse’ on Aug. 21

The last solar eclipse to cross the entire United States, from Washington to Florida, occurred in 1918, but it’ll happen again in less than a month.

On Aug. 21, the “Great American Eclipse” — when the moon passes between the sun and Earth and either fully or partially blocks the sun — will have Americans standing in the shadow of the moon for about three minutes, depending where they are. This solar eclipse got its name because the United States is the only country that will experience it. States getting the best views include Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Tennessee and South Carolina.
