The biggest and best solar eclipse in American history is coming soon to a sky near you.

On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible from coast to coast. It will be the first total eclipse visible only in the USA since the country's founding in 1776.

The rest will be treated to a partial eclipse, where the moon blocks out a portion of the sun.A solar eclipse is a rare event to observe and one that should never been seen by looking directly at the sun without protection.
