On August 21 a total solar eclipse will pass through the United States for the first time in nearly 40 years, according to NASA. But not all states will be able to feast their eyes on the full eclipse. In fact, only 14 states will have total visibility of the eclipse.
Don’t fret, everyone will have the opportunity to experience a partial eclipse. San Francisco will experience a partial eclipse at 10:15 a.m. PDT and will be able to see 75 percent of the sun blocked.
This sighting is rare and lasts roughly two minutes, and you don’t want to miss it.
We’ve mapped out the best places with high vantage points and great views of the sky that will give you a clear view of the partial eclipse (if Karl plays nice, that is).
Updates: Here are eight choice places in the East Bay to catch the solar eclipse.
Weather-wise, fog is on the horizon and in the air on the morning of the eclipse. Here’s what to look out for.
