Just before the solar
eclipse says goodbye to the Unites States, it will visit South Carolina.
This will be the last state on the path of totality, but one of the best places to be on Monday, August 21, 2017. The most spectacular celestial show that nature can create will arrive at the state of South Carolina at 2:36 PM, EDT, and will offer very optimal duration of the show for all eclipse lovers. Each city will experience it’s own length: Charleston: 1 minute 40 seconds, Greenville: 2 minutes, 8 seconds, and Columbia: a phenomenal 2 minutes and 30 seconds of totality. The central line of the path in South Carolina will offer an even 2 minutes and 38 seconds of the unique vista. What also makes this state one of best destinations is its very good position on the east coast. South Carolina is the nearest spot within the path for 100 million Americans in the Atlantic area, and Florida – and also a good destination for guests from Europe or Africa.
The Umbra will travel
across South Carolina in a path that will be 71.5 miles wide and 252 miles long.
The eclipse will say
goodbye to the American soil, leaving the state of South Carolina at 2:49, PM,
EDT, and sliding across the Atlantic Ocean where its path will end... But this sight of a lifetime will stay in the minds of all eclipse-chasers as a memory of the most magical moment our
part of the universe could ever create.
