August 21, 2017 will bring the first complete solar eclipse for the lower 48 states since 1979. The track of the eclipse will cut coast-to-coast across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. Joe Rao gives you all the details needed for observing this event and share a “sneak preview” of what it will look like using the Hayden Planetarium's Zeiss IX Star Projector.
