There will be several eclipses that pass over the US in the 21st century. This is only the first, but it has been a long time coming! If you miss this one, you will
only need to wait seven years for another, it's true - but why wait?! And besides, the total eclipse in 2024 will also be visible from Mexico and Canada (in fact, Mexico
is in many ways a better place to watch that one from!). So come on out for this one, and enjoy what will truly be considered "The Great American Eclipse!"
