Eclipse 2017 Programs

The total solar eclipse of 2017 will be the most observed in history. Crossing the US from coast-to-coast, the path of the total eclipse crosses several major cities. All of the US will have a partial eclipse greater than 50%, and a partial eclipse will be seen in much of Canada and Latin America as well.

Astronomers Without Borders has several programs bringing the eclipse to underserved communities, and building on the inspiration of the eclipse.
