The Chance of a Lifetime

English: Total Solar eclipse 1999 in France. *...

I purchased an Old Farmers Almanac the other day and made an amazing discovery.  The 2012 annular eclipse on May 20th will center in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with one edge of it reaching across the Western United States

I have read in the past about folks who travel great distances, brave third-world food and political turmoil, and elbow around in over-crowded spaces… just to get a first-hand view of a solar eclipse.  Now, this year, you can pick your spot anywhere along a track from pretty much New Mexico westward.

Great huh?  You’ll miss totality unless you want to go on a long boat ride, but it’s a great opportunity anyway. 

I’m telling you now so you still have time to book cheap airfare.

So what are you waiting for?  Go on!  Open another tab on your browser and make your reservations.  No, no, It’s ok. It’s an eclipse…you won’t hurt my feelings.  I’ll still be here when you get back.

Here…I’ll help.
