Interactive eclipse weekend map aims to make Carbondale visit spotless
Carbondale doesn't want to be eclipsed by anyone when it comes to catering to its visitors.
With that in mind, the city is offering an interactive map of the area on the Carbondale Eclipse website at carbondaleeclipse.com. It is mainly designed to help those coming to town to witness the Aug. 21 eclipse, since Carbondale is very close to the point of its greatest duration.
In fact, NASA plans to stream the event live from the city, according to a press release.
"The August 21, 2017, eclipse will travel 2,500 miles across the United States of America in an estimated 70 mile wide path, beginning its journey in Oregon, crossing 12 states, and ending at the Atlantic Ocean off the shore of South Carolina," the Carbondale Eclipse website says. "NASA will be streaming the eclipse live from Carbondale, one of the designated sweet spots within the path of totality."
Visitors can also make use of the map to find entertainment, restaurants and shopping options, as well as public cooling stations, restrooms, first-aid stations, parking and ATMs.
