This past weekend a meeting took place of eclipse enthusiasts and experts in Portland, Oregon. Hosted by the AAS (American Astronomical Society) the meeting featured many of the leading experts in eclipse prediction, mapping, education, and science.
I wish I could have gone but the timing did not work out well. All in all, the sessions were reported as productive with many ideas being put forth and actual plans emerging. Look for details in the next year as all the eclipse chasers get in gear!
Here is an article written by Richard Fienberg (AAS) for Sky & Telescope about the event: http://www.skyandtelescope.com/astronomy-news/observing-news/planning-workshop-for-2017-solar-eclipse-082620155/
