Eclipse Mania: what’s your ID? what will it look like from home? how far to drive?

August 11, 2017

This is our planet Earth during an eclipse. By some fluke, our moon is just the right size for us to experience something sure special.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, every creature on North America will have the opportunity to experience an eclipse of the sun–weather permitting. One of nature’s most awe inspiring sights, the 2017  total solar eclipse will completely cover the sun so that the sun’s tenuous atmosphere or the corona  can be seen from the west coast to the east– from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.  But no matter where you are in North America, you will be able to tell that something is going on.


Seriously though, this eclipse is likely to be the most transformative astronomical event of our lifetimes.

Because an eclipse really is the most spectacular thing that happens in our sky — and it doesn’t happen very regularly. And it rarely comes anywhere near where you might be.

And where will you be? And what will you see there?  Here’s what it will look like from Goreville, Illinois,

Just plug in the city or zip code into this site and it will give you an idea. Kind of. They admit that they took a few artistic liberties: for example, they “moderately exaggerated the degree to which a partial eclipse darkens the sky.”

Or check out this cool desktop or mobile app from NASA.

Then decide where you need to drive to by Monday morning August 21! Because the next eclipse in North America isn’t until 2024. And it starts in Mexico and moves across Texas to eastern Canada.

Remember to wear your protective eyewear! DO NOT LOOK!

But seriously — what is your Eclipse Name? Please leave it in the comments! PS Mine is Guardian of Divine Wisdom…
