On August 21, 2017 the U.S. will experience a total solar eclipse beginning on the west coast near Salem, Oregon and ending around Charleston, SC. The narrow band of totality will occur on the west coast about 10:16AM PDT and cross the northern third of Oregon, exiting probably near Ontario, Oregon about 10:25AM. Observers in Oregon will experience up to 2 minutes of totality on the coast and up to 2 minutes and 10 seconds near the Idaho border. smiling smiley

Don't stop there. A few minutes later it will pass over Rexburg ID, then directly over Jackson Hole airport, WY.
Here is a link to a good source of overlays for Google earth. Click on the one you want and it will open a KMZ file in Google Earth.

Oh man, I'm going to be in New Zealand from late October until November 12th, and the eclipse happens on the 13th. Head roll

Oh well, I'd have to go a couple hundred miles north of the North Island to see it 100% and I'd rather spend all the time on the South Island anyways, where it would only be about 60% and not as impressive as the annular one I saw from my front yard in May.
