Photographing the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

On Aug. 21, viewers stationed along a narrow path from Salem, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, will be treated to a spectacular total eclipse of the sun (provided the weather is clear). The rest of North America, Central America and northern South America will witness a partial eclipse of varying magnitude, depending on the observers’ locations.

According to the eclipse cartographer Michael Zeiler of the websiteGreatAmericanEclipse.com, about 12.2 million Americans, or 3.8 percent of the country, already live inside the path of totality, and tens of millions more reside within a couple of hours’ drive to the eclipse track, making this upcoming event likely to be one of the most widely viewed (and photographed) total solar eclipses in history!
