The day everyone has been waiting for is here!

A total solar eclipse will cross North America today, with parts of 15 U.S. states within the path of totality, including us right here in Maine.

The eclipse will first appear along Mexico's Pacific Coast at around 11:07 a.m., Pacific Time, then travel across a big chunk of the United States, from Texas to Maine, and into Canada.

Around 31 million people live in the path of totality, the area where the moon will fully block out the sun. The path will range between 108 and 122 miles wide.

In Maine, Houlton, Millinocket and Greenville, are in the direct path of totality. So if you are at any of those spots, you will be able to see the moon fully pass in front of the sun, which is where the fun starts, because it will create a blackout for a few minutes, right around 3:30 p.m.

If you don't live near any of those towns, no worries, the rest of us should be able to see about 98 percent of the totality.

Here's How to Watch the Eclipse Live

Are you going to be stuck at work or don't want to drive to see the totality? The National Weather Service in Caribou has set up a live stream, that will allow you to see the eclipse.

As always, the good folks at the Bangor Police Department, wrote up a pretty funny Facebook post of do's and don'ts that may come in handy this afternoon. Especially if you can't find any eclipse glasses, because it seems like everyone that was selling them is sold out

Enjoy the eclipse, everyone. Keep your eyes safe!
