There will be a watch party downtown in my city, on a plaza. Frankly i am wary of such large gatherings anymore, due to the gun situation. The last total eclipse i watched at my job in the mid-90s, and the whole office building went out to the massive front lawn. That was pretty cool.

e I’m going over to my daughters. I bought ten pair of watch glasses. Only thing is we’re not in the zone. But we’ll be in the 80% zone. Still pretty cool.

I'll watch it online on NASA's channel. 😕 Better than nothing, I guess.

Niagara Falls Ontario has declared a state of emergency. A preemptive thing. Just to ensure all municipal safety and support elements are up and humming in case of problems. They're expecting up to a million visitors apparently?!! Wide berth advisable!

I'm over 1200 miles away from my family but we'll apparently share the same degree of totality. 98.7% Kinda neat. There's a site that'll tell you what exactly you'll see given what town or city you're in. I can't find the bloody thing now or I'd post the link.

Sounds pretty cool. I think it is like 20% for where I'm at. Not a big hullabaloo, but should be fun to see anyway. That BloodMoon thing years ago was pretty cool, I forgot how that went.

On March 2033 there'll be a total visible in the westernmost part of Alaska. Other than that sliver nothing on the continent until 2044. Alaska would be a pretty good trip though! Northern lights are best seen in early spring up there.

Hi and welcome to msf. NASA coverage. Yep, excellent option. They'll provide good commentary/info to boot I'd say. If it's particularly overcast here that's what I'll likely do for much of it.

I think it's spectacular. I'm in awe of the heavens and it's a pretty good reality check that we, as a people, are not the center of the universe.

It’s a big deal. I am not in totality zone but I am pretty close. We considered driving to totality zone but we think roads would be all full and crazy. We will try to watch partial eclipse by us if I take off work. I saw partial eclipse in 2017 and I have awesome pics. One is in my profile here. You can see moon covering part of the sun clearly.

There will be life video online too. I’ll watch that too

I’ll be watching online. Just saw the news. My area will be cloudy with high chances of rain. Sooo… online it is.

X-ing fingers...seems weather will be spotty here too unfortunately. Thing is though it'll still be dark and an odd, eerie looking dark. That'll be a visual treat in itself.

You might still have partial eclipse zone by you. Check it out. It’s pretty cool too
