Fly Along With The Eclipse Shadow In This Groovy New Video

Fly along with the eclipse shadow on Aug. 21!

Want to follow the moon’s shadow as it crosses the continent? In this awesome video you can do just that. The simulation starts off the west coast of Oregon and tracks all the way to the Atlantic. If you’ve picked a destination town along the centerline, you’ll almost certainly find it here. The mapping is thorough with lots of cities big and small.

I’ve been on ride-a-longs before but never one this high or unique. The video is one of the best visualization of how the moon’s shadow covers the ground. Please note that it’s not in real time. The real-time shadow will cross the U.S. in about 90 minutes; this one does it in six.  Enjoy!
