#NYTeclipsewatch | On August 21, a strip of land across the United States will go dark. It has been nearly 100 years since the U.S. last experienced a total solar #eclipse from coast to coast. To mark this rare celestial event, our #NYTeclipsewatch team is looking for your photos. The Great American Eclipse, as it has been branded, will be visible in 14 states across America. (Swipe left to see a map of its path.) The duration of totality — when the moon completely covers the sun — varies by location. But across the country, eclipse-watchers are getting ready to point their cameras at the sky. (@the_chris_buck took this photo in Carbondale, Illinois, where the moon will block the sun for more than 2.5 minutes.) We want to experience what things look like on the ground. If you're on — or very close to — the path of totality, show us how you and your fellow eclipse-watchers are getting ready for the big day — or how you’re already celebrating. Take a photo and tag it on Instagram using the hashtag #NYTeclipsewatch.
