Today, August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse is coming through United States -- the first one to sweep across the entire country since 1918. Still, only those in the path of totality (which is just 70 miles wide) will be able to witness the moon completely blocking out the sun. And those in Oregon are in luck. The weather is looking amazing with warm temps and sunny skies. Want to be one of the first to see the eclipse make landfall? Then head to one of these 12 Oregon towns where meteorologists have predicted will have the best weather conditions. If you’re not directly in the path, no worries! You’ll still be able to catch a view of the eclipse... as long as you’re outside looking up around 10am.
Pro Tip: It’s super dangerous to look at any part of the sun with the naked eye, so you’ll need to wear special eclipse glasses (which you can take off during the total eclipse). And if you can't find 'em anywhere, well, our guy Neil deGrasse Tyson has an ingenious hack to try out.
