I feel confident that you are one of the last people to whom I must explain the wonder of the 2024 Eclipse - the last one for a while in North America.
April '24's Total Eclipse is the last to touch North America until March 30, 2033. After that, there are certainly a lot of total eclipses, but none in North America until August 23, 2044, twenty years from now. The one we experience this coming April is a "Prairie" eclipse from Arctic Canada into North Dakota. The highly anticipated Eclipse is the "GREAT NORTH AMERICAN ECLIPSE," which will happen on August 25, 2045.
This means that unless you are prepared to travel the world or wait out the years until these next total eclipses in North America, the time to see totality is NOW!
Because the Moon lies a little closer to the Earth during totality in 2024 (compared to totality in 2017), it will appear just a bit larger in the sky. That means it will take the Moon a bit longer to move in its orbit across the face of the Sun. And THAT suggests that the 2024 eclipse will feature a longer duration of totality on the centerline!
For many people, totality is all about duration, duration, duration. Now, the 2017 Eclipse's maximum offering of 2m40s was impressive. But for many people, the smaller relative size of the Moon meant that the sky didn't get quite as dark as they'd expected. With the whopping 4m+ of totality you'll witness this April in 2024, you can be sure that the experience will be much different. The sky will get darker, and there will be more time for watching, absorbing, celebrating, doing whatever experiments, or performing whatever photographic sequences you might have planned. You'll have more time to share the experience with all your old and new Eclipse friends! There's just more time for everything! (But that doesn't mean you don't have to practice everything first!)
As you absorb all things science, you're pondering why I sent you this email. Again, here is a simple explanation: I am with Missing Hotel located in Marble Falls, just a quick jaunt from Austin. You won't discover a cooler and more appropriate venue to experience and enjoy the April 8, 2024 Eclipse experience. Practice? We practice daily to assure our guests, especially our Eclipse viewing guests, the ultimate opportunity to observe one of science & nature's ultimate natural phenomena.
Having experienced a few total eclipses, I can attest that each is unique and special. It's not just about the duration of the Eclipse but also about the environment, the people you're with, and the memories you make. That's why I couldn't agree more when they say that the only thing better than seeing a total Eclipse is watching it with like-minded folks from a standout destination in the path. And with the 2024 total eclipse just around the corner, I couldn't be more excited than to invite all viewers to take advantage of Missing Hotel as the perfect place. Let's all ensure we're on the path to witnessing this incredible phenomenon firsthand. See you there!
And that, dear people, brings us to the most crucial reason why the 2024 eclipse is special: Simply because… it's a total eclipse! Isn't that enough reason in the first place? We hope you agree, and we'll look forward to seeing you… IN THE PATH… on Eclipse day!

The first part of the project took one year, 16 hour days of working to the bone, with a tight knit crew of six amazing, creative and hard-working people you'll find.
Bringing Oli home to the Airstream had its challenges, so luckily our in-laws were kind enough to let us share their house until… the first dome was complete! We lived with Oli in our Morii dome for about 6 weeks and created some of my favorite memories during that time.
