Solar eclipse 2017: Times, how much of the sun will be blocked in 102 Alabama cities

Reference and reminder!

Source: al.com, by Leada Gore

The total solar eclipse on Aug. 21 will cut a swatch across North America, with the path of totality - where the sun will be completely blocked by the moon - about 70 miles wide. The path stretches from Salem, Oregon through Charleston, South Carolina but even if you're outside that zone, the Great American Eclipse will still be pretty spectacular.

*****

Observers outside the path of totality will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers portions of the sun's disk. And while Alabama is outside the path, the view here will still be impressive with almost 98 percent of the sun blocked out in some cities in North Alabama.

*****

Gulf Shores - 1:34:36 pm CDT - 80.2% of the sun

Montgomery - 1:34:36 pm CDT - 89.6% of the sun

Birmingham - 1:31:56 pm CDT - 92.6% of the sun

Huntsville - 1:30:52 pm CDT - 96.9% of the sun

Mentone - 1:33:08 pm CDT - 97.8% of the sun
