Eclipse 2017: One Nation Under The Sun

On Aug. 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse made its way from Oregon to South Carolina. Fourteen states were in the path of total darkness — the first time a total eclipse covered such a wide swath of America since 1918.

On Aug. 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse made its way from Oregon to South Carolina. Fourteen states were in the path of total darkness — the first time a total eclipse covered such a wide swath of America since 1918.

NPR sent 21 videographers across the country to capture the moment millions of Americans looked to the sky.

We met Troy Anders who got his first tattoo commemorating the eclipse, Gary Wyman who was recently diagnosed with ALS and traveled 11 hours to see the eclipse, and Charlottesville residents Beverly Ingram and Doreen Bonnet who said the eclipse brought people in their community together.

The next total eclipse to pass through the U.S will occur in 2024. Until then, watch this video and re-live the great American eclipse of 2017.
