What time to see the solar eclipse in Arizona

By now, you've probably heard about this thing called the Total Solar Eclipse. We ask the experts about its significance to science.

The total solar eclipse will begin in Oregon this morning and move across the nation before ending in South Carolina by mid-afternoon. 

WATCH: Follow the full eclipse from coast to coast

Portions of 14 states are in the path of totality of the eclipse, when the sun is completely covered by the moon. Totality begins in Oregon at 10:16 a.m. PDT.  The total eclipse will end near Charleston at 2:48 p.m. EDT.  

While Arizona isn't in the path of totality, residents can still see a partial solar eclipse. The northeast corner of the state will have the highest percent of obscuration, with Page, Arizona, expected to see about 76 percent.
