2017 Solar Eclipse Visible to More Than 400 PathwayConnect Locations

For the first time since 1918 (99 years ago) 1 , a total solar eclipse will be visible from coast to coast in North America! At this exciting time, tens of thousands of people from around the world are gathering to see this momentous event.

The August 21, 2017, solar eclipse will fall directly over 10 PathwayConnect locations, including the BYU-Idaho campus in Rexburg, Idaho. While a total eclipse will only be visible through the path of totality (areas in which viewers will see the moon completely cover the sun), a partial eclipse will be visible throughout most of North America and parts of South America and Europe — making the eclipse visible to more than 400 PathwayConnect locations!


With PathwayConnect students living all over the world, share how you are celebrating and what you see on social media. Using the hashtag #MyPathwayEclipse, you’ll also be able to see what other former and current PathwayConnect students see from their part of the world!
