For the first time since 1979, a solar eclipse will be completely visible in the United States, with the arc of total visibility stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. According to scientists, this is also the first solar eclipse to be entirely in the United States since 1776. So pack up your viewing glasses (remember to never look directly at the sun under any condition) and hit the road for this truly once in a lifetime event.
