A total solar eclipse blocked out the sun across the U.S. yesterday in the major event that’s was dubbed the “Great American Eclipse."
The total solar eclipse yesterday was unique in that it will be visible all across the U.S., with the moon appearing to completely blot out the sun in parts of 14 different states.
The eclipse started in Lincoln Beach, Oregon at 9:05 a.m. PDT and ended in Charleston, S.C. at 4:09 p.m. EDT.
For those that were in the path of the total solar eclipse, it lasted about two minutes and 40 seconds at most.
According to NASA, on April 8, 2024, the next total solar eclipse will stretch diagonally across the U.S. from Texas through the Northeast U.S.
