A total solar eclipse is poised to black out large parts of North America on April 8, a spectacle that will begin over Mexico's Pacific coast and travel across the U.S. to Canada's Atlantic coast.

With more than 30 million people living along the path of this cosmic event, NPR wants to hear the unique ways you'll be celebrating, whether that's with classrooms of students, work colleagues, family or friends.

Is this your first full solar eclipse, or did you have your glasses out in 2017, too? Is your business booming from eclipse tourism? Do you just love the moon?

However you're celebrating, we want to hear from you.
