What do you predict that the corona will look like for the August 21, 2017 eclipse?
On Aug. 21, 2017, the United States will experience a solar eclipse. Along a path 60 to 70 miles wide stretching from Oregon to South Carolina, observers will be able to see a total solar eclipse. Others across North America will see a partial eclipse.
