This August 21, Americans will experience the first total solar eclipse since 1979 to touch the lower 48. But unless you're in the path of totality, you'll only see a partial eclipse, an experience compared to standing next to the grill and only smelling the steak instead of tasting it for real. With that in mind, here are some of the best places to watch this phenomenal solar event as it makes its way from Oregon down to South Carolina.




 Madras, Oregon

             

Duration of Totality: 2 minutes 4 seconds

Starts At: 10:19 a.m. PDT

Madras is located in Oregon's high desert about a 2.5 hour drive southeast of Portland, in the shadow of Mount Jefferson. Come early for the Oregon Solar Fest and stick around after the eclipse to experience gorgeous sunsets like the one pictured here.

Arco, Idaho

              
Duration of Totality: 2 minutes 18 seconds

Starts At: 11:31 a.m. MDT

While Craters of the Moon National Monuments falls just outside of the path of totality, the city of Arco, the National Park Service, NASA and Idaho State University are partnering to put on a program of starwatching events at the park in the days leading up to the eclipse and an official viewing on the day of the eclipse in Arco.




Jackson Hole, Wyoming

                
Duration of Totality: 2 minutes 20 seconds

Starts At: 11:42 a.m. MDT

Grand Teton National Park is already one of the most beautiful places in America to visit in the summer, but this August the eclipse's path of totality goes almost directly over the small town of Jackson Hole bumping it up even higher on our bucket lists.

[post_ads]If you want to avoid the crowds, splurge on the Total Eclipse Sky Party at the Spring Creek Ranch. Not only is the ranch located on a butte 1,000 feet above Jackson, the party includes a brunch buffet with mimosa and a Bloody Mary station, solar eclipse glasses and a special presentation from an astronomer from Wyoming Stargazing.
