Those in the path of the penumbra will see a partial eclipse.

The night before, the pair will spend the night stargazing in a geodesic dome in the OR wilderness.

Despite the challenges, some see the full eclipse as still worthwhile to see. The community will be in darkness as the moon passes across and completely covers the sun for approximately 2 1/2 minutes. The August total eclipse is hitting superstar status thanks to its high-profile path across the US. Many major suppliers are already out of stock or scrambling to keep up. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Experience totality, then, as soon as the bright sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to look at the remaining partial phases.

NASA says that this will produce "the clearest images of the Sun's outer atmosphere - the corona - to date and the first-ever thermal images of Mercury".
