On my bucket list: witness the total solar eclipse that is occurring on August 21, 2017

Solar eclipse this weekend! The Western U.S. is getting an annular eclipse this weekend, which is an eclipse where the moon’s shadow turns the sun into a “ring of fire.” A swath of the country from Oregon down to Texas will see the whole enchilada, and most other Westerners will get to see at least a partial eclipse. Those of us on the East Coast are SOL until 2017.
