So if you didn't know already, there's a total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017, visible in totality within a band across the entire contiguous United States. So that's pretty awesome. Last time that happened was presumably before any of us were alive, on June 8, 1918 eclipse, and there hasn't been a total solar eclipse visible from the mainland United States since the February 26, 1979 eclipse (which I assume most people here didn't see).
I'm going on a long road trip to see it, which is going to be totally worth it. Got any plans? There's gonna be so many people around.
