A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location.  For this eclipse, the longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path will be about two minutes and 40 seconds. The last time the US witnessed such an event was on July 29, 1878. Learn more at https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/eclipse-who-what-where-when-and-how
