The summer of 2017 brings a rare and much anticipated event for astronomy nerds, star gazers and eclipse chasers across America — a total, coast-to-coast solar eclipse. The celestial event will go down on Aug. 21, 2017, and will be the first of its kind in nearly 100 years. The last total, coast-to-coast solar eclipse occurred on June 8, 1918. The next one won’t happen until 2045, and who knows if America will even exist at that point? All of which is to say, you’d better not miss it.
