It was said that when Jesus died on the Cross, that the Earth experienced its first solar eclipse. It lasted about three hours as well. See Mark 15:33, Matthew 27:45, Luke 23:4.

What is a solar eclipse:

According to WikiPedia. A solar eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. This will make it appear to be dark outside when it is day time.

When was the last solar eclipse when is the next solar eclipse:

It has been said the last time was February 26, 1979. But, I have looked there has been other solar eclipses, but not ones that were total solar eclipses that went all the way across the United States of America.

Dangers & Cautions

It is very dangerous to look into the sun, but it is even more dangerous to look directly at the solar eclipse. It is advertised to wear special solar eclipse glasses.

I am sure the path is just an educated guess.
