what is the time of day for the solar eclips aug 21st in rexburg id
On 2017 August 21, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses the United States of America. The path of the Moon’s umbral shadow begins in northern Pacific and crosses the USA from west to east through parts of the following states: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina (a tiny corner of Montana and Iowa are also in the path). A partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering all of North America (See Map).
Idaho has one of the rockiest landscapes in the Union, but by good fortune, a significant portion of the track crosses the lowlands of the Snake River Plain, a 100-mile-wide, 375-mile-long depression in the Rocky Mountains that stretches from Ontario, on the Oregon border, in a broad arc that terminates against the Teton Mountains near Idaho Falls. On the west side of Idaho, near Payette and Council, the track barely intercepts the low ground, so that the north limit moves across the narrow Long Valley of the Payette River, while the south limit intercepts westernmost portion of the Snake River Plain. Immediately afterward, the track crosses the rugged and cloudy 10,000-foot peaks of the Sawtooth Range. Before it leaves the state, it drops once more down to the lower elevations of the Snake River, passing over Idaho Falls before reaching the Wyoming border.
