A total solar eclipse will sweep the width of the United States for the first time in 99 years on Aug. 21. These astronomical events actually occur every year, two or three, but they often are seen only in the middle of nowhere. This year, the eclipse will cut diagonally across the United States. The eclipse will be totally visible in only certain places in the country, and many people plan to take a trip to those places to get the best view. The Durango Herald would like to know: Do you plan to travel outside of Colorado to see the total eclipse? If so, where? Fill out this Google form and submit it. Include your name, your phone number and email address and a brief explanation of where you plan to travel and why you chose that place. Also, tell us if you have ever previously seen a total eclipse. We may use your information in an upcoming story about Durangoans traveling to see it.
