Total Eclipse

On Monday Aug. 21, a solar eclipse will cut across the entire United States. And wherever you are, you will be able to see it. Even though the "totality" — the area where the sun is completely blocked out by the moon — is only 70 miles wide, the whole country (even Alaska and Hawaii) will experience a partial eclipse. This is what you'll see, and the time you'll see it, in your zip code.  

So says the message in my inbox this morning.  This site explains it for us.  And it reminds us not to stare at it unprotected.  But we knew about that already, didn't we.

Apparently I'm about 700 miles southwest, more or less, from where I need to be to get a "totality" experience.  Still, there should be something.
