POULSBO — The solar eclipse is underway.
All of North America will experience at least a partial eclipse today, NASA reported. Depending on where you live in the United States, the moon will completely or partially block out the sun for a brief period as the eclipse’s path crosses the U.S. diagonally from Oregon to South Carolina, NASA reported.
A total eclipse will cross the country from Oregon to South Carolina over the course of an hour and a half — on what is being called the path of totality — and 14 states will experience night-like darkness for approximately two minutes in the middle of the day.
NASA is airing a four-hour show, “Eclipse Across America,” starting at 8 a.m. local time. Go to www.nasa.gov/eclipselive. Viewers will see images “captured before, during, and after the eclipse by 11 spacecraft, at least three NASA aircraft, more than 50 high-altitude balloons, and the astronauts aboard the International Space Station – each offering a unique vantage point for the celestial event,” according to the site.
