On Aug 21, 2017 millions of lucky people will be able to watch the moon completely cover the sun and turn day into night for a few fleeting minutes. Suddenly the temperature drops, animal behaviour changes, it is quite an experience. This event is called a solar eclipse.
Who will see it? Lots of people! Everyone in the United States, in fact, everyone in North America plus parts of South America, Africa, and Europe will see at least a partial solar eclipse. 14 states in the US will get to see the total solar eclipse.
