Videos: Total Solar Eclipse of 2017 over North America – August 21

A total solar eclipse will pass over North America on August 21st. Below are some videos and web resources for the event.

[ UpdateAstro Maven Rick Boozer points me to an eclipse viewing event that he will be hosting in South Carolina: Awe-Inspiring Spectacle in Upstate South Carolina – Astro Maven –

For the first time in 47 years, South Carolina will experience a once-in-lifetime total solar eclipse of the Sun!  On August 21, 2017,  Anderson Jockey Lot will host a viewing of the event as a free public service.  Astrophysicist and veteran total solar eclipse observer, Rick Boozer will provide expert running commentary.
Assuming clear skies, the Anderson Jockey Lot will be the best viewing location of the totality climax along the I-85 corridor with longest totality time in this area of 2 minutes and 38 seconds.  Totality for the City of Greenville will be 2 minutes and 10 seconds – nearly 30 seconds less.  Spartanburg, at most, will only have several seconds.
