    We were right in line for the 2012 95% eclipse where the moon looked like it had a ring around it at the peak. It was pretty cool, but I don't know if I'd make a huge drive to see a total eclipse. I will say that getting solar eclipse-safe glasses for that one was a bitch. Sold out everywhere, and crazy prices.

    The most interesting thing about that 2012 eclipse was the spaces between the leaves on trees in our neighborhood making hundreds of "mini projections" of the eclipse on the sidewalk. Almost like a kaleidoscope.

    Quoted from schudel5:

    Total eclipse path forecasted almost directly over my house here in Kalamazoo in 2099. Fortunately I'll be here. Unfortunately I'll be in a position unable to view it at all.

    Depends on how old you are now and if you make it to the singularity. That'll give you the boost you need.

    Quoted from schudel5:

    135 then. Highly doubtful.

    The Singularity is estimated to be in the 2030's, so you just have to get that far, then you're good to go.
