    I enjoyed the 'Great American Eclipse' article by John Hollenhorst in today's Deseret News' However the last paragraph could lead to some confusion as to where to best travel to see it from SLC area.

    Idaho Falls is just barely in the south border of the 60 mile wide zone of totality. Rexburg and Rigby are very near the center of the zone. If a reader travels to 'just south of Idaho Falls' as stated in the article, he or she may miss out seeing the spectacle, at it's fullest.

    I believe a correction is in order, telling readers that they should travel to 'somewhere just north of Idaho Falls, up to 40 or 50 miles maximum. Otherwise, thanks for a very interesting article today.
