According to the Associated Press, total solar eclipses occur when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, completely covering the sun and blocking out its light.

On August 21, the path of totality, or total darkness, will start near Lincoln City, Oregon and continue to Charleston, South Carolina, traveling 60 to 70 miles.

The eclipse will last up to 2 minutes and 40 seconds in some areas and people living in Canada, Central America and the upper part of South America will see a partial eclipse.

What makes this one so special — at least for Americans — is that it will cut diagonally across the entire United States.
