FYI August 21, 2017 is Eclipse Day accross the U.S.A.
Total Solar Eclipse 2017 - Path Through the United States
If you have never been in the path of a solar eclipse you really should try to be in the 100% occlusion zone next year. The path starts in Oregon and exits in South Carolina, after bisecting both states and many in between.
For many of us, this will be a once in a lifetime event:
Everything goes dark, the wind stops, the temperature drops (bring a jacket), look for eclipse images in the shadows cast by leaves, and a whole lot more weird/cool stuff!
Be there or be square!
