The path of totality

A total solar eclipse (where the moon blocks the sun in its entirety) will only be visible along this path—but almost every state will get at least a partial view.

A map of the United States of America that depicts the eclipse’s path of totality and lists the following cities within it: Dallas, TX, Idabel, OK, Little Rock, AR, Poplar Bluff, MO, Paducah, KY, Carbondale, IL, Evansville, IN, Cleveland, OH, Erie, PA, Buffalo, NY, Burlington, VT, Lancaster, NH, and Caribou, ME
Fun facts! The halo of the sun’s uppermost atmosphere that’s visible during a total solar eclipse is called the corona. The entire eclipse will take about two and a half hours, but totality only lasts about four minutes at locations along its path. Don’t be alarmed if you start to hear crickets chirping—some animals mistake the eclipse’s effects for dusk.

A friendly advisory: However you celebrate the Great North American Solar Eclipse, please remember that you should never stare directly at the sun—even if you’re wearing sunglasses—unless you have specially designed eclipse glasses. Stay safe and have fun, fellow eclipse enthusiasts.

FAQ

We’ll have limited-edition, ISO-certified solar eclipse glasses available—for free!—at all of our stores, starting April 1 through the big day. Drop by anytime to pick up a pair. (We can provide up to two pairs per family, while supplies last.)
Our Customer Experience team will not be able to answer specific questions about the inventory levels of solar eclipse glasses at our stores, and we can’t guarantee that they will be available by the time you arrive. We know you’re just as excited about this celestial spectacle as we are, so we encourage you to swing by at your earliest convenience. 
Note: If we've run out of solar eclipse glasses by the time you arrive, we'll be able to provide you with an eclipse pinhole projector. With this projector, you can safely observe the solar eclipse through a projection—neat!
