Be sure to note today's eclipse, 
even if you're not in the totality area.  

Where I am in Vermont, we'll see about 60% eclipse.  How about you?  And remember to wear your solar eclipse glasses!! 

If you miss out this time, take heart.  The eclipse on Tuesday 8 April 2024 will also be a total solar eclipse for parts of the USA.  It will be my first total solar eclipse since 2 October 1959.  I was four years old then, in Boston, and it was overcast.

NASA says, of 2024...

The totality path will cross northern Vermont (including Burlington), southern Canada (including Montreal), northern New Hampshire and a large swath of northern Maine. It will peak mid-afternoon.
Like today's eclipse, this one will also be visible across the continental U.S., with Carbondalle, Illinois, being the lucky city seeing total solar eclipses in both 2017 and 2024.
