have made plans to visit my niece in Nashville. They seem to be almost directly under the path of the optimal viewing.

Of course, if the earth weather does not appear to cooperate, we may have to be flexible with the plan.

So, the eclipse should begin at about 1:15 eastern time and take an hour and a half to traverse the lower 48.
