The incredible combined talents, passion and skills of Michael Zeiler, Xavier Jubier, Fred Espenak and Jean Meeus plus many more, put this whole eclipse right in the palms of all of our hands!

Our family’s experience began when our 8-year-old grandson had to do his first book report last fall in second grade.  For reasons he can’t explain – I suspect it had something to do with the cover reminding him of “Star Wars!” – he picked a book on eclipses.  His mom asked Grandma for help, and I went to the internet.  There I stumbled onto “The Great American Eclipse!”  I have spent the rest of the year researching online, ending with a daily family newsletter starting 6 months out from the Big Event to bring the family up to speed on eclipses!

We traveled to eastern Idaho for three reasons:  probable clear skies, a grandpa who fly fishes and the national parks plus whitewater opportunities.  We saw the total solar eclipse from start to finish in Ashton, Idaho, and were completely gobsmacked, as promised.  Thank you, Zeiler et al!!
