Akron will experience 2 minutes and 50 seconds just one minute later at 3:14 p.m.

Carbondale, Illinois will see the most totality at 4 minutes and 8 seconds.

Ohio is one of only 13 states in the path of totality.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. During a total eclipse, the Moon lines up perfectly to fully obscure the Sun, resulting in totality.

It’s considered one of nature’s rarest events.
