We talked about this a year or two ago, and now it's only two months away.  The Great American Eclipse happens on August 21st!  The areas that will see a total eclipse are in that swath that runs straight across the middle of the country.  Who's gonna see it??

I say I might be able to see it, and even though it will be in the summertime, with my luck, we'll have an overcast sky! I miss ALL the neat full moons, eclipses, etc.... Yikes

Even if it's overcast, the darkness should still be pretty dramatic.  Hoping for clear skies for you!

It looks like I have to wait until 2024 before I see one over here!

I would definitely make the drive, Rhonda!  But if you can't, you'll have another chance on April 8th, 2024.  This is the one I'm pinning my hopes on.  I live in the 90% totality zone, but a four-hour drive will get me to totality.  I hope I'm not jinxing myself.  There's an old Jewish saying:  If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.  Whistle

You're just a hop, skip and a jump from totality, right, Matthew?
