I’m really close to the path of totality. Won’t I see anything cool where I am?


NO!!!

You have to be IN the path of totality, or all you’ll see (with your solar viewers, of course) is a partial eclipse! Those are pretty common, and are absolutely nothing to see, compared with the beauty of totality. If you get nothing from this at all, please get this:

You MUST be IN the path of totality to experience the glory of a total eclipse! If where you are is not in the path of totality, then move yourself into it on eclipse day, and you will come away understanding what we were talking about! Miss it, and you’ll miss everything; you’ll have no idea what all the people who WERE in the path are raving about the day after, and you will have missed it! The pictures you’ll see in the newspaper and on TV will be NOTHING compared to the experience of having been there! Do NOT miss out!

Please see the response we wrote to an editor whose city is “close” to the path. Please get yourself INTO the path!
