Florida is not in the direct path of the eclipse but the farther north you go, the more you'll see the sun covered by the moon. 

If you're not in the mood to travel to one of the U.S. cities for a complete eclipse on August 21, this handy map can help you figure out just how much of the sun will be blocked in your city. 

Using NASA data, Larry Koehn put together the map to match up with the timing of the eclipse, and the percentage of total coverage of the sun. Check it out:

August's eclipse marks the first total solar eclipse to span from coast to coast in the United States since 1918. The upcoming total solar eclipse is also the first for the United States since 1945.
