Introduction. I will be in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone area in August on a photography excursion (click here). On August 21, along with a multitude of other photographers, I'll make my first attempts at photographing a total solar eclipse. This eclipse is unusual in that the only land based place to view it in totality will be in the USA as the path of totality completely crosses the USA for the first time since 1918. There will be another such total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, when the path of totality crosses Central and North America (including parts of Texas).
Presently, this webpage is intended to be a partial resource (there is a "world" of information out there in cyberland) for information regarding the 2017 total eclipse. It will be updated sometime after 8/21/2017 with the results of my photographic efforts.
