Philip Harrington homes in on the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017. The moon's shadow will come out of the Pacific Ocean and touch down in Lincoln City, Oregon. It will cut diagonally across the country. It will pass over Idaho Falls and Jackson, Wyoming. I was in Grand Teton National Park in 2015, otherwise I might consider viewing the eclipse there. The shadow races through Nebraska and on to St. Joseph, Missouri. It cuts across the southern tip of Illinois into Kentucky. The small town of Crofton, Kentucky, is the best place to see the eclipse, where there will be 2 minutes, 40 seconds of totality. This is where I will be if there are no clouds. If it is cloudy, I will drive to where it is clear. The eclipse passes over Nashville, giving observers 1 minute, 51 seconds. Totality will be experienced in Great Smoky Mountain National Park and into South Carolina. Columbia will play host before the eclipse goes into the Atlantic Ocean at Charleston. This is it, an opportunity for Americans to witness nature's greatest spectacle.
