About The Eclipse
The August 21, 2017 eclipse will travel 2,500 miles across the United States of America in an estimated 70-mile-wide path, beginning its journey in Oregon, crossing 12 states, and ending at the Atlantic Ocean off the shore of South Carolina. The eclipse will be viewable at several cities where Banterra facilities are located, but most notably in Carbondale, Illinois. Carbondale is a few miles north of the point of greatest duration, and at approximately 1:20 p.m. CDT the total solar eclipse can be experienced for 2 minutes and 38 seconds.
