This summer’s major event in the United States is a pretty substantial one: A total solar eclipse that will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Whether you make the journey or decide to watch the eclipse from right here in Washington, this is a pretty amazing occurrence you should see. Check out the official website for more information.
