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.
