    Default Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017

    Visible in the United States, although mostly along a particular band.

    Kind of interesting in terms of the logistics and how an event like this can have an impact on society for one day. I never really thought about it until I ran across the article.

    Is anyone actually considering driving, in order to see this better? I'm a good 8-10 hours from the line where I could witness an entire eclipse so... probably not, although I am tempted just for kicks.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Unfortunately I'm no where near that zone. I did catch a total eclipse over my area when I was at college some twenty years back. Had an end of the year/eclipse cookout going on. A good time.

    I can't wait. It looks like Southern Illinois is in the zone. It might be doable.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    On a serious note, I'm not sure if we will be able to see much. Storms and lots of cloud cover for Monday here.

    Will probably be too cloudy or even stormy anyway.
