In Atlanta, viewers will notice a partial eclipse around 2:36 p.m., but will have to travel to witness the total eclipse in person.
“There are lots of online animations of the 2017 eclipse, but you can’t use them like ours to get a sense of the full experience, including your surroundings. Our simulation is closer to what one might experience in a planetarium show,” the UC Berkeley scientists said.
The tool could also help people figure out where to get the best “total solar eclipse experience,” the scientists said.

This simulator is part of the Eclipse Megamovie Project, a Google-Berkeley collaboration aimed at collecting and stitching together thousands of photos of the Aug. 21 eclipse taken by volunteer photographers around the country.
Vox also created a nifty eclipse tool, similar to Google's eclipse simulator, showing what you can expect to see in the sky on Monday, Aug. 21 based on your ZIP code.
But Vox's tool, based on data from the United States Naval Observatory and NASA, also tells you just how far you'll have to travel and in which direction to see the total solar eclipse.
Find out how far you’ll have to drive to see the eclipse in all its totality.
