It appears at this time that I will probably be in the Thornton and Rexburg areas of Idaho when the total solar eclipse occurs on August 21.
It is a "few" miles from where I will be staying in The Beast, so I'll be getting up early to head up there to "secure my beachhead" viewing spot. The eclipse will begin around 10:15 AM.
Speaking of viewing, special glasses will be necessary for eye protection while viewing the beginning and ending phases of the eclipse. I found a website who sells them: http://www.eclipse2017.org/glasses_order.htm.
