Jul 09, 2010 - Baja, California, U.S. - On Sunday, July 11, 2010, a total eclipse of the sun will be visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's Southern Hemisphere. The path of the moon's umbral shadow crosses the South Pacific Ocean. It will make no landfall except for Mangaia (Cook Islands) and Easter Island (Isla de Pascua). The path of totality ends just after reaching southern Chile and Argentina. The moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering the South Pacific and southern South America.

The Orange County Register: Why you should make travel plans now to see the 2017 total solar eclipse

From the writers at The Orange County Register.

I don’t often bicker with my brother, but this argument has occupied us for months.

Idaho or Wyoming? Where are we going to see the upcoming total solar eclipse – possibly the only one we’ll see in our lifetimes?

If you’re interested at all in heavenly bodies – and I don’t mean the ones at the gym – then you may already know there will be a total eclipse of the sun over the United States on Aug. 21, 2017.

Yes, August 2017 is a year from now. So why are we already arguing?

Because this event is attracting the attention of the entire world, with travelers flying in from everywhere to find the best viewing locations. It’ll be the first total solar eclipse in North America in 38 years.
