Here's the path of the Moon's shadow during the 2017 Great American Eclipse. It goes from "sea to shining sea" hence "The Great American Eclipse". There are may considerations for choosing the ideal point on the center line to view the eclipse...weather/clear skies are the most important. I selected Douglas, WY for a number of reasons...weather conditions on the day of the eclipse looks really good...but then again it's weather we're talking about and it is a little over a year from now. The odds look good non the less!
