Total Solar Eclipse Transforms Illinois Town Into a Celestial Super BowlFor the first time since 1918, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the contiguous U.S. — from Oregon to South Carolina — and cities along a 70-mile-wide (113 kilometers) "path of totality" will witness the strange effect of seeing the skies go dark in the middle of the day. For many people, today's event will be their first time witnessing a total solar eclipse. "I've seen partial eclipses before, and that really left an impact, so I really wanted to experience a total [eclipse]," said Brian Pietrzak, who traveled to Carbondale with his wife and two young sons from Wheaton, Illinois.
