The nation is preparing for a solar eclipse this coming Monday, August 21, which will be the first time an event like this has occurred since 1979, NASA reports.

While California will be able to see a partial eclipse, other states like Oregon, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Tennessee, Missouri, and South Carolina will have a view of the total eclipse.
