On the morning of Monday, August 21, 2017, this total solar eclipse will first be visible to observers in western Oregon. From the beaches of the Pacific Ocean, the shadow of the Moon will race (at times over 2,500 miles per hour) eastward. It will cut across the United States, moving through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and will leave the continent in the afternoon for observers in South Carolina as it moves across the Atlantic Ocean.
