Americans from the Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans will be facing the heavens on Tuesday for a once-in-a-lifetime total solar eclipse. The last coast-to-coast eclipse was in 1918.
We’re covering this historic event that will be partially visible to everyone in the U.S., but completely visible to those in in the path of totality. CGTN’s Hendrik Sybrandy and Lisa Chiu will have the latest from this path in Wyoming in the west, and South Carolina in the east — where the last people will catch the eclipse before it disappears forever.

2017 ‘Great American Eclipse’ means big business
We’re just days away now from the so-called Great American Total Eclipse. It’s the first solar eclipse in almost a century to sweep across the country from coast to coast. And towns along the so-called path of totality are preparing for an influx of people. CGTN’s Hendrik Sybrandy reports from Wyoming.
Tales of the eclipse: EAT the Sun
Over the millennia, there’ve been countless ways humans have tried to explain the solar eclipse. One legend common to ancient cultures around the world is that of a predator chasing the Sun so to devour and extinguish its life-giving fire.
