Why it is called the “Great American Eclipse”?

The most common phrase used in the media to describe the coming total solar eclipse of 2017 is ‘Great American Eclipse’ and this is why:

1. The 2017 eclipse will be so widely accessible to many millions of Americans because the eclipse track bisects the USA from Oregon to South Carolina. Over half the nation can reach the path of totality within one day’s drive!

2.  The 2017 eclipse is the first time in 38 years that the continental USA experiences a total solar eclipse, the first time in 99 years that a total eclipse crosses from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast, and the first time ever that a total solar eclipse visits the USA and no other nation since the nation’s founding in 1776!

3. This is the first total solar eclipse in an industrialized country in the age of social media. Because of this, information about the eclipse will spread like wildfire and the nation will be transfixed by the extraordinary vision of eclipse day. You can be certain that this will be one of the biggest stories of summer 2017 and that you will remember this event for the rest of your life. The eclipse will truly be that impactful.


Room reservations and lodging for Great Eclipse are at astronomical prices.  Some locations for full viewing are charging up to $1,000 per night.
