According to NASA, this rare phenomenon is the last total solar eclipse visible from the United States until 2044, promises a breathtaking display as the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow across the region. The eclipse is scheduled to begin at 1:27 pm CDT in Texas and conclude at 3:35 p.m. EDT in Maine. The eclipse will traverse North America with a mesmerizing sight as the sky darkens, resembling the twilight hours.
