…the 2017 North America Solar Eclipse.  See the great eclipse in locations everywhere across the continent on August 21st!*

* Visibility of the 2017 North America Solar Eclipse is not guaranteed.  Consult local weather forecasts.  Premium travel rates may apply.  Lodging is not guaranteed.  Eclipse solar coverage will vary from none to totality depending on your location.  If you are within the path of totality on August 21st, 2017, you may use those several minutes, at your sole discretion, to reprove Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity.  Never look at the Sun either directly or through a magnification device such as a telescope or binoculars without proper solar filters securely equipped.

  1. In order to get time off from work to see this event I had to put in for it three months in advance. My wife and I live in Amarillo, but her family members live in St. Charles, Missouri. A few miles south of there we’ll see the eclipse. Got our glasses and special lenses for the camera.

      • You know, clear skies is always an issue, but I knew someone that observed a total eclipse in England once when it was cloudy. He was on a hill and it got pitch dark and down at the bottom of the hill he saw hundreds of mysterious flashes of light. It took a minute for him to realize these were people’s cameras. So I suppose if it’s cloudy it will still be exciting.

      • Yes, and I am sure there will be side effect phenomena just like those cameras, on August 21st, in the very crowded areas.

        Regarding the clouds, the Sun is a powerful light source, obviously, but so powerful that a telescope with a solar filter will still be able to pick it up through light-to-moderate cloud cover. But I hope I won’t have to test cloud density in a few weeks.

      • Well, now that I am “in place” at a motel with my wife at ground zero of the eclipse in Missouri, they are predicting “mostly sunny” (good) to “partly sunny” (bad). We’ll see!
