Here is my personal plea for you.
If possible in any way: Go somewhere you can experience the totality of the eclipse this year.
If you've never experienced one, it is better than you can imagine.
Celestial mechanics become *real* in a way that is awe inspiring. You'll experience a strange melange of smallness paired with a connectedness unlike almost any other event in your life.
Make plans now.
