Many populated locations along the path will experience from 1min 30sec to 2min 40sec of late morning or early afternoon darkness with visible stars.
According to this very descriptive website, hotels will be booked far in advance for this rare event. The last one occurred here in the year 1257; the next one is in 2316.
Borah Peak - Idaho's highest - will be in the path of totality. What a great time for a SOTA activation.

This year's NPOTA event has put people in the field with their radio gear - perhaps many of them wouldn't have considered it otherwise. Smart phone manufacturers are now giving increased attention to "weather-resistancy"...how long before HF ham radio manufacturers follow suit?
