(WPBN/WGTU)-- Are you hoping to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse on Aug. 21? Or are you planning to travel to a place that will be in the eclipse's "path of totality"?

However you're planning to view the solar eclipse, NASA has a tool that will help you determine what time exactly the eclipse will begin based on your location in the United States.

On August 21, the continental United States will witness the first visible total solar eclipse since 1979. For the first time in 99 years, the path of totality will arc across the central states from Oregon to South Carolina. Northern Michigan will only see a partial eclipse.

With NASA's interactive map, you can see the start and end time of the solar eclipse throughout the country. The exact times of the solar eclipse will vary for each city.
