My wife and I along with some friends will be flying to San Antonio to see the eclipse on April 8th. The full eclipse will be seen on a wide swath all the way from Texas to Vermont and I encourage everyone to experience it.

We saw it in Madras, Oregon in 2017. In my movie, you can see Mt. Jefferson in the distance as the shadow of the moon crosses the valley between us.

    I'd almost suggest staying just outside the totality. If you're under a tree, all those little blotches of sunlight on the ground are coming thorough what amounts to a pinhole camera. During the eclipse, they all turn into crescents.

    It made my hair stand on end.

  • The temperature dropped 20° when the sun went away. I've never felt radiant heat disappear so fast.
