What happens during a Total Solar Eclipse?
As the first Total Solar Eclipse to affect the United States since 1979, this once in a lifetime phenomenon has been formerly dubbed, The Great American Total Solar Eclipse. During a Total Solar Eclipse, the sun disappears behind the moon, transforming daylight into twilight. This swift, but awesome transformation will cause an unforgettable astrological display, as streams of light will dance across the sky around the silhouette of the moon. Depending on location in the country, the affect of the Total Solar Eclipse will take place over the course of about an hour, with total darkness lasting 2-3 minutes.

Myrtle Beach: The Perfect Location to View the Total Eclipse of 2017
Although the entire contiguous United States will experience The Great American Total Solar Eclipse, there is a stretch of land, about 70 miles wide, that will experience the highest magnitude of this historical event. This prime area of viewership, known as the “Path of Totality,” starts in Oregon and stretches across America to South Carolina! Myrtle Beach is the perfect location to take in the Total Solar Eclipse, as it is less than 75 miles from the Path of Totality, and has thousands of premium oceanfront accommodations that will give you a front row seat to the show of the millennium. Taking in The Great American Total Solar Eclipse from your private, oceanfront balcony is the perfect way to watch it all unfold, as the eclipse will reach totality at approximately 2:45 pm, and the sun will be directly over the ocean!
