Solar? Have you heard?


That date is almost upon us now, only one month from this coming Friday.


This total solar eclipse is one for the ages, THE big ticket event for 2017. Umbraphiles (those who chase eclipses) have been planning for this one for decades, and it’s already hard to find a room along the path. Fear not, as you only need to be within striking distance the day of the eclipse to reach totality, though expect the roads to be congested that Monday morning.


Be sure to keep an eye out for planets and bright stars during the eclipse.
