Once every 400 years or so, we'll experience a total solar eclipse in a path of 'totality' about 100 miles wide. The next one in the US is August 21st, 2017.
Mr. Baron speaks, at the Longmont Public Library on May 12th, 2017, about the life changing experience of a total eclipse and how it changed him into an eclipse chasing.
