I’ve never heard of this, but there’s real science behind it!
You learn something new every day.
I’m not sure whether anything like this is going to happen, but Oregon is going to get something like a million people coming and trying to get into the path of totality. It’s going to cause HUGE traffic problems; what’s usually a 60 minute drive from Portland to Salem will become a 6 or 8 hours.
Assuming it’s not too cloudy on Monday, we should be able to see 99.1% of the eclipse from our home in Vancouver, WA. I don’t think it’s worth braving the insanity this weekend and driving 12 to 18 hours in order to see see the additional 0.9% for 2 minutes…
I got my family some cool Bill Nye eclipse glasses too
