In 20 days, a solar eclipse will pass over parts of the United States. There are stories up already about where to go see it (and what you’ll find in the towns where you visit), if you’ll be able to see it where you are and all the other things you’ll need to consider that don’t involve just looking up.

Is your newsroom is in the path of the solar eclipse? How do you plan to cover it? I’m reaching out to newsrooms along the path and will share interesting ways they’re covering the story of a lifetime. Reply in the comments below, tweet at me or send an email, and I’ll share what I find.
