What will the Eclipse be like in your area?

Let's start by looking at what eclipse maximum will be like at four major cities, starting furthest from the path of totality:

max at major

The closer one is to the path of totality, the more the Sun is obscured at eclipse maximum.

Next we give a longer list of cities, and add in the times at which the eclipse starts, is maximum, and ends:

max at SA cities

None of the places listed will see a total eclipse - they are not in the path of totality as shown in the maps.

If you live elsewhere, look at the cities or towns closest to you for an idea of what you will see at eclipse maximum.
