So I have to go and chase it….
My husband and I will be at a place called St Joseph in Missouri and we’ll be experiencing nearly the maximum time of 2 minutes and 38 seconds of totality…Woohoo!!
You don't have to travel this far to see this amazing event as NASA is going to live stream the whole eclipse
Please see the links below and enjoy the experience :-)

The other camera will be a Canon 700D with a Canon 17-85mm wider field lens, so I can capture the whole viewing area and sky…I’ll take some video and some time-lapse with this camera.
I’ve also got one of those tiny action camera’s that I’m going to just let run on it’s own to pick up anything that’s happening around us.
This is my second total solar eclipse, so I feel more confident now with my times so I can take a bit of time to just look up and enjoy the event :-)
I’m really hoping to capture some wonderful images of this eclipse in the US, like I did for our amazing
Australian Total Eclipse of the Sun that happened here on the 14th November 2012.
Please see some images below that I took on the day at Ellis Beach just north of Cairns.
We were ever so lucky with the weather because it was so cloudy before totality!
Please go to my blog with more information on the Australian total solar eclipse day :-)
