Thanks for the link dex. Looks like I am at 72% obscurity. I hope it isn't cloudy that day.
I'm in the path of totality. Only because I'll be at work. If I was at home, I'd be close, but outside of that path.

Get off muh short bus!!! We're blasting Bon Scott, anyways!
Solar Eclipse 2017: When & Where?
If you live in the Lower 48 States, you'll see either a total eclipse or a partial solar eclipse when the moon blocks the sun, starting at 9:06 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Monday, Aug. 21. It will start in Madras, Ore. and end at 4:06 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time in Columbia, S.C.
(Note: You can safely view the total eclipse without special equipment for the few minutes that the sun is completely blocked. It is NOT safe to watch a partial eclipse without special equipment.)
The total solar eclipse will last about one minute to three minutes, depending on where you live. The partial eclipse will last longer. Consult the NASA eclipse guide below, which was posted on Space.com, to see when the total eclipse will pass by your neck of the woods.
The total eclipse will cover about a 70-mile wide path. However, the partial eclipse will be visible from all Lower 48 states.
A lot of cities and towns are holding special events with music, performers, food and drinks to celebrate the eclipse. Hotels and airlines are hosting special events, too. Can you imagine seeing the total eclipse from a plane?
What are you doing that day? Have you thought about hosting a block party with your neighbors? In many parts of the country, schools will still be on summer break. So, it's the perfect timing for a daytime celebration!
