Labeled "The Great American Eclipse" and "The National Eclipse, the worlds greatest natural phenomenon will be the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in America since 1918.  Entering Oregon and exiting in South Carolina, most of the Continental United States will be able to partially see the 2017 eclipse.   However, to fully experience total darkness  you must be within a 67 mile band of the shadow.  

The difference between seeing the eclipse from within this band and outside of it is truly "Night & Day"

The first total solar eclipse touching the continental United States since 1979 touches down on the Oregon coast between Lincoln City and Newport at 10:15 a.m. PDT. Before Oregon, the shadow of the Moon (umbra) does not touch any other landmass or island before Oregon.
