What can I expect?

Witnessing a total solar eclipse is breathtaking. Day turns to night for a brief period of time as the moon completely blocks out the sun’s face, leaving only a thin halo around the edges. You may feel the air get colder and hear local wildlife become quieter or louder. To get an idea of what the eclipse might look like in your area, check out this eclipse simulator.
