    For those of not in totality here is a link to a USA Today article on how to watch it on TV or streaming.

    National Geographic channel will have an eclipse show starting at 2:00 pm EDT. ABC, NBC and CBS all have scheduled coverage so there are options.


    I was planning to travel to the zone, but had an, uh, interesting weekend that has precluded traveling there. Oh well, totality came to my home in 2017 so there's that.

    The most appropriate as you wait for the event is certainly:

    I'm ready! Tested my solar filter and I didn't go blind. Seeing sun spots for the first time was admittedly pretty cool. (There were a couple)

    LIES AND PROPAGANDA! They just don't want us to see that the Earth is flat!!!! The eclipse will reveal all!!! You've been lied to your whole life.

    (And yes, there are people who believe this).

    The sun was 100% flat when I looked at it. Just because it's round doesn't mean it's not a glowing frisbee.

    Also if you don't hear from me after 3:15 EST it's because the Rapture has taken me.

    I really don't think people understand how common a solar eclipse really is. It's just that most of Earth is covered by water.

    Also not true! I'm standing on dry land. I walk 100 yards in any direction and I'm still on dry land!
