The Great American Eclipse Is Coming – Start Planning Now For Prime Viewing!

The Great American Eclipse is coming.  I am so excited about this total eclipse that’s coming up August 21, 2017. You have to plan ahead to be in a state that the eclipse can be seen from. NASA has a festival going on in Oregon that sounds like it will be a blast! They have place to stay, gear to rent and a group of people with their eyes on the sky.

A total solar eclipse is unlike anything you’ve seen in your life. As totality approaches, you will see the astonishing sight of day turning to night and the Sun’s corona blazing in the sky. This is truly a great American eclipse because totality will sweep the nation from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

Nearly everyone in the US can reach this total solar eclipse within one day’s drive.  If you are in Southern California it is going to take a bit more planning to get in position, but get some friends and start planning now.

An eclipse is a cosmic billiard shot — the Sun, Moon, and Earth line up to reveal the Sun’s atmosphere, it’s corona. Eclipses on Earth occur only because of an amazing celestial coincidence.  Read more about this event.
