Total Solar Eclipse on August 21

The ​​total solar eclipse of August 21 will begin in the north of the Pacific Ocean, will cross the United States of America and end in Cape Verde, in the Atlantic Ocean.
A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the sun and Earth, blocking the sunlight and casting a shadow onto Earth. A solar eclipse is only visible in the zones that correspond to the trajectory of the shadow cone. 
This eclipse will be seen as partial throughout USA, Centre of America, north of South America, a part of Western Europe, North Africa and a part of Northeast of Russia.
The ​​​eclipse can also be seen as partial from a part of the Iberian Peninsula. The Northwest, near Vigo will be the better place to view the eclipse, with a 14% of occultation.
