Total Eclipse of 2017: Looking to the Future
The Solar Eclipse on Aug 21, 2017 will be total from coast to coast across the United States. It will also be visible in all of the Northern Hemisphere in the Americas. It's the big one that we should be preparing for and this year will provide an excellent opportunity to set a few precidents. One could view this year's eclipse as just a dress rehearsal. Since the eclipse will be occurring in August the weather will be quite favorable at that time of the year in terms of clear skies. So I would advise those who want to observe this year's eclipse to look to the future. 2017 is only five years from now.
