The last total solar eclipse in the continental United States took place February 26, 1979. I was still in high school. That eclipse was seen in the Northwest States and Canada. The states that will see a 100 percent eclipse this Monday cut a diagonal path across the United States from Oregon to North and South Carolina. It's actually being called "The Great Carolina Eclipse." In New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania we will get a 75 percent eclipse which will start at 1:22 Monday afternoon. The next total solar eclipse will be in 2024 and you'll be able to see it from Texas to Maine. If you want to know even more here's a very informative video from National Geographic.
