On August 21st, 2017, the United States will host its first total solar eclipse in nearly 40 years. While a partial eclipse will be visible from the continental US, only a thin strip across fourteen states will experience what is regarded as the most astounding celestial event one can witness: a total solar eclipse. This film is about why you should do everything you can to go see it.
"Seeing a partial eclipse bears the same relation to seeing a total eclipse as kissing a man does to marrying him, or as flying in an airplane does to falling out of an airplane."
-- Annie Dillard
