One month until USA Total Eclipse
Jul 21 @ 10:50 am – 2:02 pm

Don’t miss out on this, make some travel plans!

A total eclipse of the sun will runs smack through the middle of the USA on August 21, 2017. Plan a car trip, bus ride, or plane trip to the narrow strip of Earth stretching from Salem, OR through to Nashville, TN in which the sun will *completely disappear* for two minutes. (Not many large cities are in the path of the totality, so make your reservations early if you want to observe it from the comfort of civilization.)

If you’ve already got plans, the next total eclipse passing through the USA is on April 8, 2024…

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN
Aug 21 @ 9:50 am – 1:02 pm

If you live anywhere in North America, don’t you dare schedule anything else for this day (excepting weddings, reunions, and vacations.)

THIS IS IT. A total eclipse of the sun that runs smack through the middle of the USA. Plan a car trip, bus ride, or plane trip to the narrow strip of Earth stretching from Salem, OR through to Nashville, TN in which the sun will *completely disappear* for two minutes. (Not many large cities are in the path of the totality, so make your reservations early if you want to observe it from the comfort of civilization.)
