Great American Eclipse

On the afternoon of Aug. 21 people across the United States will experience a once-in-a-lifetime event: a total solar eclipse. The moon will line up directly between the sun and Earth, casting a shadow on our planet. That shadow will travel across the country, from Oregon to South Carolina, and as it does everyone in the continental U.S. will be able to see some portion of the eclipse.

Eclipse timing

  • Partial eclipse begins at 1:12 p.m.
  • Maximum eclipse (97% from campus) experience at 2:41 p.m.
  • Partial eclipse ends at 4:03 p.m.

Viewers in Winnsboro, S.C.–just over an hour south of Davidson–will be in the path of totality. Davidson viewers will experience 97% totality. See what to expect in you area with the interactive simulator below.
