These Fantastic Maps Show the #SolarEclipse Totality Viewing Time Through Each State
From Oregon through to Missouri and eventually out to sea beyond the shores of South Carolina, where you are within the upcoming solar eclipse’s umbra will determine the length of time the eclipse will occur in your location; for example the house I grew up in St. Louis will experience a 32 second total eclipse but just a few miles south will experience a full one-minute eclipse, and many more miles south will experience a complete 2 minute 41 second total eclipse.
As the eclipse traverses the continental United States each locality will also experience the phenomenon at different local times. Great American Eclipse have done a fantastic job of creating maps – and even video animations – that detail each state’s eclipse traverse and timestamps:
Here are quick links to each of the state’s effected by this month’s Total Eclipse and their respective maps:
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
