On August 21 a total eclipse of the Sun will carve a swath of destruction darkness across the continental US!  Get your ceremonial daggers ready.  Any HEROphiles in the vicinity?  What will you do?  Dive for cover?  Ooh and aah?  Take data?  Ritual orgy?  The options are limitless!

It is not going to destroy any major cities ?

In Boise I'm about 25 mi south of 100% maximum eclipse. I'm still in the 99%+ area though. I'll probably check it out and try not to blind myself.

It's pretty close to St. Louis. Those folks will riot over just about anything.

It looks like it goes pretty close to St. Anthony in eastern Idaho. Am I reading that right?

Sadly, I think that's the week I start back to school. Otherwise, I'd make the four hour drive.

Right now I have some partly-formed plans to night over in eastern WA with some friends the night before, and drive into the totality path that morning. I would not try this anywhere except out in a rather sparsely populated area, which does, however, describe northeastern Oregon.

My house is actually in the path of totality, from what I can see . . . and if I go north less than 10 miles, I'd be on the centerline of totality--so I'll probably take the day off work and just sit on my deck to watch it.

You'll get a partial in December 2019, another in April 2023, and a nice total one in July 2028, and the tag end of another total one in November 2030.

Huh. An annual eclipse steps on Seattle in 2084. I won't see it, but my kids might.

Another good one for the eastern US in the not-too-distant future will be in April 2024. Comes up from the Pacific stepping on Mazatlan, steps on Torreon, leaves Mexico/enters the US at Piedras Negras, clips Austin, steps on Indianapolis, Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester, goes a little south of Montreal, runs across New Brunswick and Newfoundland, then out into the North Atlantic.
