Then you would be wrong. Oregon State, Nebraska, Missouri, and Vanderbilt are also in the path.

I thought about making the drive up 85 from Atlanta to Greenville to view the eclipse in its entire totality,however after seeing all this craziness and how bad traffic is expected to be I'll enjoy the 97% we get here in Atlanta!

Even within his own state, the University of South Carolina in Columbia is totally within the path.

Geesh...

Will be in a tiny town in Nebraska that falls directly in the path of totality. The state is projecting an influx of at least 300K people for the event if not more.

I had seen this statement on Clemson's website probably 2 months ago and I forgot the university was taking advantage of the eclipse to tout its US News rankings.

' Clemson University is South Carolina's only top 25-ranked public research university in the path of totality for the 2017 solar eclipse.'

http://www.clemson.edu/science/depar...s/eclipse.html

According to this eclipse website and map, it looks like the totality duration is a good bit longer at Clemson and Missouri than the others, both at about 2:37. Clemson is almost perfectly centered on the path, and nearby Central is dead center.

To max out in Tenn, it looks like you need to be north of Nashville closer to the state border with KY. At Vanderbilt, looking at 1:47 duration.

Lincoln is more on the edge and has a total solar eclipse duration of 1.14.

Corvallis / Oregon State is projected to be 1.40. Looks like peak duration in Oregon is north of Corvallis. Looks like the max time in Oregon is 2:09.

Can't have anymore of a front row seat over here! 2 minutes and 37 seconds, only 3 seconds less than maximum. And the weather was looking depressing at first, but everyday the forecast is getting better and better. Been waiting on this since I discovered astronomy and found out what an eclipse was. Can't wait!

Actually, I have no interest in the eclipse and don't get all the hype.

I remember the last one in 1970 and even as a kid thought it was a let down. It's sunny, gets dark for a few minutes, gets sunny again. Pretty much the same thing we get over a 24 hour period, only condensed. I will be working and doubt I'll even go outside.

Besides the one in 2024 will be better (at least where I live) if one is really into seeing an eclipse.

You have a guarantee that you'll be alive in 2024?

Well if I'm not, I guess it doesn't really matter than does it?

At any rate, I still don't feel any inclination to see this eclipse. Like I said, I saw the last one - wasn't impressed. I'm sure this is more of the same.

I guess you don't realize that a lot of us didn't exist in 1970. I know I didn't.
