Get Eclipsed: The Complete Guide to the American Eclipse

August 21, 2017. Mark it on your calendar. For on that day an amazing total eclipse of the Sun will happen.

It's been 38 years since the last total eclipse was seen in the continental USA. The Moon's shadow is finally returning to America in 2017 bringing with it the incredible experience of Totality.

Imagine the mid-day Sun dwindling down to a narrow crescent. A moment later it vanishes as you're plunged into an eerie twilight. The Sun is surrounded by ethereal gossamer halo as bright planets dot the dark indigo sky. And time seems to stand still.
