Gov Docs: Solar Eclipse: Home



The University of South Alabama (USA) Libraries have been a Federal Depository since 1968.



On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America was treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone, within the path of totality, saw one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon completely covered the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere, showing only the corona - stretched from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path saw a partial solar eclipse where the moon covered part of the sun's disk.
