I'm thinking of tagging along with a friend to La Serena, Chile in 2019. Sure it will be July 2nd, which is their rainy season, but they only average ~100mm of rain a year so what are the odds of clouds really?! I might be addicted.

There will be another eclipse across the eastern US and Canada in 2024, and another one with a very similar path to this week's in 2045 (but will last much longer!) There's also an annual eclipse covering the western US in 2023 which should be interesting.
This time we were lucky enough to have crystal clear skies (and atmosphere so stable there were no shadow bands visible in Oregon) despite clouds the day before and heavy smoke the day after. I took a lot of pictures and managed to produce this after several days of work: Total eclipse, August 21, 2017 by Nimbulan, on Flickr
