Why should I stay home for the solar eclipse on April 8?

I never expected to be where I am today.

As a space correspondent, I've spent the better part of the last decade bouncing back and forth about moving to Florida to live on the Space Coast, where I could attend all the rocket launches and put myself in the middle of a lot of space news. It is happening. But unfortunately, for a number of reasons, both personal and professional, I remain content where I am.

In 2017, shortly after moving to my current residence, I traveled to Fulton, Missouri to witness my first collection Solar eclipse. It had taken a four-hour drive to get there the night before, and given the popularity of the event, the accommodation I was able to book was well below five-star. However, I was there to witness an incredibly magnificent celestial event, so it didn't matter that the tub blocked the bathroom door from closing.

Seriously, the bathroom door couldn't close because the sink was in the way. (Image credit: Josh Dinner)
