2017 Eclipse Blog / FAQ’s Offical 2017 Eclipse Blog!

Welcome to’s official blog page!   Over the next few months (as we approach eclipse day), we’ll be posting about all things eclipse-related.  Your author is Dan McGlaun, a veteran eclipse chaser with 12 total eclipses under his belt.  All topics will be fair game:  What causes eclipses, what you’ll see, where you need to be, what you need to have with you, eclipse news and events we learn about, just everything!

And if you need answers to your eclipse questions, you can head over to our FAQ page and post them!  Dan will be responding to these, to create a searchable eclipse knowledge base for everyone to use.  (If you have a question, there’s a good chance a lot of other people do, too!  So don’t be afraid to ask.)

It’s been almost a hundred years since the USA has had this opportunity of seeing a total solar eclipse pass from coast to coast.  And the last time totality touched the mainland US was in 1979.  That means that, unless you happened to live in an area that was visited by that 1979 eclipse (or the ones in 1972, 1970, or 1963), or unless you’ve traveled outside the US to see a total eclipse – then you haven’t seen one!  Don’t feel bad, though, because that puts you in the same situation as almost every other American.

And that’s why was created – to give YOU the information you need to enjoy the total eclipse safely!

We’ll see YOU… in the shadow!

Clear Skies,
