The Greatest Eclipse will pass over northern California, Nevada, southwestern Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, southwestern Colorado, an northwest Texas. A partial solar eclipse will be easily viewable in parts of the U.S. that are west of the Appalachian Mountain chain.
It will not be visible from the U.S. East Coast, including Florida (except for the panhandle).

If Solar Eclipse happens when moon is closer to earth and hence can at least cover some area with complete darkness is Total Eclipse. However, when moon is quite distant and can't create complete darkness is Annular Solar Eclipse.
In Total Solar Eclipse, the sun is not at all visible, however, in Annular Solar Eclipse, sun is visible on complete circumference on moon.
As an analogous example: Suppose your friend (sun) is standing at a distance and observing your TV (earth). The more close you (moon) standing to your TV, more you can hide him from your friends view.
