Mark your calendars – on Monday, August 21st a good swath of the US will be thrown into darkness during a total solar eclipse!
For those of us outside of the path of totality we’ll have to suffice with a partial eclipse – how much depends on where you are. Here in central Minnesota we’ll get about 83% totality.
If you haven’t made plans to go somewhere that will have totality, you may be hard-pressed to find a hotel or campground near the path.
I could include loads of resources here to help you find out more about the eclipse but really, it’d be easier if you just Google 2017 eclipse – you’ll find lots of information. Also, if you get your hands on Astronomy Magazine‘s August 2017 issue there is an excellent section dedicated to the eclipse.
