I really need to learn to master those reporting tools as my results does not look pretty at all. (I am well acquainted to Tableau though)

Are there any instructions to help with finding the right files to download from this hint?

 

***HINT: It's helpful to limit the path of totality to the boundaries of North America (optional). Download a shapefile of the United States here: https://www.census.gov/geo/maps-data/data/cbf/cbf_nation.html.

That was fun! Took me a while to work out how to get the polygon built properly

An interesting problem.

 

I'm a little way off the path of the eclipse though (being in the UK)!

Here is my solution

This was fun.  I put in my location where I was during the eclipse.  Just outside of totality picking up my son from the airport.  He flew through the eclipse.

Nice one, although it was quite obvious my current location was not in the path
