The total eclipse is only going to be visible south, southwest and west of us — in places like South Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, Nebraska, Wyoming etc.
We will ONLY see a partial 62% coverage solar eclipse. But, even that should be fun.
It will start at 1:27pm and end at 3:57pm. So a 2.5 hour show with maximum coverage, i.e., 62%, at 2:45pm.
Right now the weather forecast for Monday, August 21, 2017 calls for clear skies. So that is good — but that can change.
You really should get some proper eclipse glasses for this. I have ordered these from Amazon.
