Dan and I plan to see this amazing event. I saw the one in 1979 from Brookings, South Dakota. For this one we will probably be in Troy, Kansas, but who knows. A park ranger told me they were told to consider this event to be a Controlled National Disaster as so many people are going to be in the coverage area.
