    Help us out!!

    Eclipse2017.org's goal for eclipse day is for everyone to watch the eclipse - simple as that! We plan to inform everyone -- school administrators, mayors, governors, radio and TV stations, members of Congress, DOT officials, local police agencies, immigration officials, and anyone else we can think of -- about the nature of this event, and assist in any way possible with planning, logistics, communications, etc., to make this a fun, enjoyable, and safe event for everyone.

    There will be a lot of effort involved on the local level to pull this off, and so, we'd like for anyone who feels they can help - through the volunteering of their time and talents - to contact us. Your help will be greatly appreciated!

    Examples of things you can do to help include letter-writing, serving as a local information liaison, web site design and maintenance, webcam/photo/video/webcast expertise, site scouting... The list is endless! Even if all you do is share the information you find here with someone else, your help will be vital in ensuring that everyone has a safe and fun three-day eclipse weekend! (That's right - the party starts Friday night, and continues straight through to Eclipse Monday!)

    So where are we going to be? That's not figured out quite yet. Unlike the upcoming eclipse of 2024, this one doesn't touch our home state - so we can go anywhere we want! Here are some very good choices:

    The beach in Oregon or South Carolina
    Grand Teton National Park (or anywhere in Wyoming along the path!)
    Nebraska (with its GREAT weather prospects!)
    Land Between the Lakes, KY
    Downtown Nashville, TN
    Any of the FIVE state capitals in the path
    Smoky Mountains Nat'l. Park (though watch the weather!!)
    The campus of BYU - Idaho (in Rexburg)
    Anywhere in the path of totality!
