I've just accepted an invitation as keynote speaker to the Astronomical League's annual national convention in 2017 (astrocon2017.astroleague.org). ASTROCON 2017 will be held in Casper, Wyoming, on August 16-19. By no small coincidence, the convention occurs in the days just before the 2017 total solar eclipse, and the central line passes right through Casper! The duration of totality there will be 2 minutes 26 seconds.

I run NASA's eclipse web site (NASA Eclipse Web Site) and I'm reaching out to make contacts in Casper to help promote the 2017 eclipse. Please contact me if you're involved in planning in Casper for the eclipse.
