At dawn, the eclipse will commence over the Pacific Ocean, traversing through Mexico and crossing the United States from Texas to Maine. While a partial eclipse will be visible across most of North America, many will find themselves within the path of the total eclipse.

Thankfully, Burger King isn't the only restaurant offering specials in honor of the cosmic occurrence.
