On Monday, August 21, 2017, Cherokee County North Carolina will be directly in the path of totality of the solar eclipse.  All of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun, however, those lucky enough to be within the path of totality can see one of nature's most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse.  This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere  - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.  Observes outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers only part of the sun's disk.
