It will depend on the weather though. If the forecast isn't good I'll go west towards Nashville or Paducah. I hope not to miss this one since it will be my first opportunity to see one since March 1970.

I remember that one too in MD. We had this shoebox with a little pin hole in it that we used to watch on a piece of paper. Momma told us not to look at the sun. It was only later that I learned that's where the fun is.

If anyone here is still looking for a great place to watch the total eclipse, there's a resort in Lonedell, Missouri that still has some space, but you might be in for more "moon" than you were looking for. Big Grin

RE: August Eclipse
So following amazons huge recall of eclipse glasses, I'm not sure I'm going trust the ones that we acquired from hubby's work.

Yes, he works in a hospital. But another hospital chain has recalled the ones they gave away.

Think I'm back to the box and pinhole.

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Traffic's already starting to get heavy around here, and it's only Thursday.
