It is indeed dark during the day as a total solar eclipse makes its way from Oregon to South Carolina. Eleven states are in the path of total darkness.

Delawareans will see a partial solar eclipse, when the moon will cover 80 percent of the sun locally.

And they have plenty of locations to choose from to see the partial eclipse, including many Delaware State Parks and local libraries, as well as The Delaware Museum of Natural History and Mt Cuba Observatory.

And Delaware Public Media's Science reporter Katie Peikes will be covering the eclipse in the First State at The Delaware AeroSpace Education Foundation in Smyrna. 

Locally, the eclipse is slated to be visible from about 1:20 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday.

But you can also follow the astronomical phenomenon's journey across America along with NPR journalists and others experiencing the eclipse in a live blog below:
