If you miss this year's total solar eclipse, the next one to cross the United States will be in April 2024, but it will only cross over the eastern portion of the country. Any given location will see a total solar eclipse only once in more than 300 years, on average.

The last total solar eclipse over the continental US was in February 1979, when it was visible only from five Northwestern states.

For starters, one airline, Alaska Airlines, will charter a flight over the Pacific so select passengers can see the eclipse from the sky.

NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN even during the eclipse, without approved protection! Southern Utah will see between 80 and 90 percent coverage.

The total solar eclipse next month will be the first one across North America since 1918.

Q: What time is the eclipse?

Two Southwest Airlines flights are also good candidates to catch an extended view: Flight 1368 from Portland (9:05 a.m. PT) to St. Louis (2:50 p.m. CT) and Flight 1559 from Nashville (12:50 p.m. CT) to Charleston, S.C. (3:15 p.m. ET). Presented by youth and teen services, the program will include indoor demonstrations of eclipses and a space project, and then move outside for viewing with safety glasses.

"This is the first time we're able to use measurements from the ground and from space to simulate the moon's shadow going across the face of Earth in the United States and calculating energy reaching the Earth", Wen said. Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens believed extraterrestrial life on Jupiter and Saturn must enjoy daily eclipses of their moons, due to orbit patterns. Expect major highways between Utah, Idaho and Wyoming to be especially crowded, so allow extra travel time. This phase is called totality, and it lasts about 2 minutes.

"You have to make sure you're within the path of totality, because if you see a 99 percent partial eclipse and you think, well what's the difference?"
