The Great American Solar Eclispe Millions of Americans will see the sight of a lifetime when a rare total solar eclipse sweeps the nation from Oregon to South Carolina. Day turns to night for up to 2 minutes and 40 seconds and the sky's most beautiful spectacle, the Sun's corona, reveals itself in grandeur.
