Here's an amazing simulator from the geniuses at NASA to show what the solar eclipse will look like. Things get rolling in Maine about 1:30pm and goes until about 4pm. The BEST time will be at 2:45 when the skies will darken and the sun will look like a bananna, or a cresent facing downwards.

Here's how it will look in Portland at 1:35pm
