The Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun August 21st 2017

An event of a lifetime for everyone in the shade!


Plans are in motion! MILLIONS of people will travel from around the globe to see the Eclipse...will you be one of them?

Why is this Eclipse so special?

ITS A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN - and you don't have to take an airplane over Greenland, or a boat out in the middle of nowhere to see it.

This is the first Eclipse visible exclusively in the contiguous United States.

Over 220 Million people in the US, live within a days drive of the path of totality.

The Eclipse will cross 14 states from the Pacific North West to the East Coast.

Totality occurs only in a narrow path (50 mile or so) .... if you are not in the path you will not see the total solar eclipse!

You can read about an eclipse, and watch all the videos on them you want, but to experience this life altering event- YOU MUST BE THERE!

Here are the best links I found in my research, hope they help you plan the trip of a lifetime!
