More like four and a half minutes tops for this one. And if you’ve never seen a total eclipse, I can understand your reluctance. But believe me, a total eclipse is the most awesome natural event you’ll ever have the chance to witness, by far. Unless you count the ones that might also kill you. 😱
August 21, 2017 there was a total solar eclipse in my area. It's not that impressive with the naked eye. I stand by my opposition to traveling 10+ hours to see one in person. :ROFLMAO:

No one has ever seen a total solar eclipse and regretted it.

No one.

Are you sure you were in the path of 100%?

Even if you were in the path of 99.5% it's not the same by a longshot. What town?

Heh, for me it’ll be more like 60 hours of driving, round trip. And sleeping in a roof-top tent in dispersed campgrounds both coming and going. Absolutely worth it. No question about it. None whatsoever.

I've read that the Cleveland Guardians (still not used to that name 😐) will be playing a pre-season game during the eclipse, and there's some question about what will happen during totality. "Rain" delay? Eh, it'll probably be overcast there in early April, so it may not even matter. Play ball!

yeah in central texas they are planning on shutting down schools and think there will be a million+ extra people in our area. Speaking to someone in a small town of about 10K people and they expected at least to double their population.

Sitting in my backyard watching it, I hope. On the whole path of totality in the USA, we have the lowest odds of actually seeing it at 17%. It will still get dark though.

It's a sign, to make fire & smoke, eat meats, and otherwise consume mass quantities. To appease the sun swallower, of course.
