Satellite images overlay 2024 and 2017 total solar eclipses sweeping across US

North America has experienced two transcontinental total solar eclipses within the last seven years, and these satellite images compare the crisscrossing paths of totality. 

In 2017, a total solar eclipse moved from northwest regions to southeast areas, sweeping from Oregon to South Carolina and casting a shadow across 14 U.S. states coast-to-coast for the first time in 99 years. Then, just about two weeks ago, on April 8, 2024, another total solar eclipse traveled from the Pacific to the Atlantic, but this time moved southwest to northeast.
