Solar Eclipse Trip 1 -

In 2013, when I learned that Hopkinsville, Kentucky would experience the
longest totality of the 2017 solar eclipse, I booked a
room right away. Being a science/astronomy buff,
I never dreamed I would have such an opportunity.
So, in August, Ryan's family met us in Hopkinsville, Kentucky
for this long-awaited event. And, exactly as predicted, for 2 minutes & 41
seconds it turned night, stars came out, the sun's corona was
spectacularly visible and the temperature dropped 20 degrees. It was an experience
none of us will never forget!
On April 8 2024, when the next U.S. solar eclipse crosses from Texas to
Maine, we will be somewhere, with Ryan's family and Alan, to
view it. There are only two more U.S. solar
eclipses this century, in 2045 & 2099, so 2024

will be your last chance to experience this rare celestial event.
Don't miss it!
