The Fauquier libraries will also host an eclipse viewing party on Monday, Aug. 21, from 1:30-3 p.m. It will first appear in OR at 12:05 eastern daylight time, and travel east across the central United States, ending in SC at 2:48pm.

We last had a total solar eclipse in the U.S.in 1979, but this is the first coast to coast eclipse since 1918. The path of the eclipse started in the Northwest, beginning in Washington and traveling east to North Dakota before moving into Canada. The last coast-to-coast solar eclipse was in 1918 and IL only witness a partial eclipse within the penumbra shadow.

If you miss the august 21 eclipse, you will have to wait a while to see another one in the U.S. The next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the continental United States will be on October 14, 2023, which will be visible from Northern California to Florida. A partial eclipse means a part of the sun will be covered by the moon. Texoma will not see a full eclipse.

If you're wondering when the next total solar eclipse will happen across the entire continental US, you'll have to wait a couple more years.

For the next hour, viewers using safe viewing devices (and a clear eastern horizon-the sun will still be low in the east, in this hour after dawn) will see the moon slowly uncover the sun.

That being said, still expect it to get dark across the area during the event.

Here are a few do's and don'ts of how to view the solar eclipse on the day.

Remember when you're mom told you to not look directly at the sun?

To take pictures of the eclipse on a smartphone, NASA suggests covering the lens with a solar filter just before and after totality, as this will provide a clear image of the solar disc.

According to a release, more than 250 million Americans live within 600 miles of the path of the eclipse.

"Although the partial eclipse will be visible anywhere in the continental United States, it will not compare to experiencing the total eclipse", National Park Service staff say. Then, in 2045, the totality of a solar eclipse will be directly over North Mississippi, so if you're still around you'll be in for a treat.
