If you can't make the 2017 Eclipse, or if you want to 'get both' mark your calendars:  

Nasa: Total Solar Eclipse - 8 April 2024.

While the point of Greatest Eclipse is going to be in Mexico, the band of Totality will still stretch across the lower middle to north east part of the US.  On the Google map on the website, wherever you click, it will drop a marker and give you the times for C1, C2, C3, & C4 as well as Maximum Eclipse (totality). Times are in UT (GMT).

So if you have solar glasses, save them!  Or - once they're available again - order them early!

Cool I'm right in the center band!

Can a few of you help me push Michigan just a little to the east?

It's never too early to plan.

Seriously, the first eclipse hotel reservations here were made at least 3 years ago - back before the town was even aware of what was going to happen.   I mean some of us geeks knew about it, but the city hadn't yet started any propaganda or planning... and the rooms were already being sold.

So knowing about it 7 years early... that won't hurt anyone.

I'm in the "cross hair zone".....both eclipses are going right over my house. One minute and twenty two seconds for the current one and a little longer for the one coming in 2024. Very rural area, no traffic concerns, stocked up and ready.

I'm going to find a place in SE Oklahoma to stake out for 2024.

Then that will be it until 2045, which the path of totality will run right over all of Oklahoma. I'll be 66 years old then, so that will be it for total solar eclipses for me.

I hope to see that one since it will be in my back yard

Tempting to plan for this one since it'll be in Indiana but the one coming up in a few days is about the same distance south as the 2024 one is north.

Both are on Mondays as well.

Well, crap.  The link is dead...ish.  It just brings you to 2017 eclipse now.

So here's another link with the same info:
