    99% here. I have having a "Safety" pizza party for my department at 12:30 so we can go out and watch the peak coverage.

    100% in the path here... looking forward to it today! I'm in Clarksville, TN. NASA is even here at the little university we have (Austin Pray State University) and will be transmitting to Times Square in NY. There are people here from all over the US who came just to see this eclipse, lol. And yes, I have my special glasses!

    70% here. Got my H-Alpha telescope out and lots of glasses. I find it funny reading about all the shortages of glasses as we've known about this for so long and it was actually in the news a lot. Still had my glasses from the 2014 partial.

    100% here. No glasses. I don't think we had them in 79 for the last one. We'll take a late lunch and just close our eyes for that 3 minutes. I'm sure someone will film it and put it on facetube or twitgram.
