The Great American Eclipse event will happen on August 21st. You can see the map and read more about that here. So today between 2:40-2:45 is practice time. The sun today will be in the same location it will be in during the eclipse. Maybe you want to set up a filtered telescope, run a test launch or take a few pictures. Maybe you just want to check out a perspective observing site. How far away are any trees? Are you too close to any buildings? Can you see the horizon?
