Stumbled across this today while trying to figure out if my "eclipse glasses" are worth the paper they're made out of (verdict: TBD). NASA has produced a wonderful interactive map with begin and end times for the Aug. 21, 2017, eclipse wherever you click on the map:

How cool is that?!

Our family will be in Salem. (We think. We're spending the night just outside the north edge of the path of totality, and expecting to drive south the morning of the Big Day. Traffic may be ... a challenge. We'll see.) Looks like we should be in the dark about 10:17 a.m. (and 29 seconds) PDT, then the roosters will crow (or so I've heard) one minute and 53 seconds later.

Can't wait!
