I was just informed off line that if I go somewhat north of Flagstaff I will be able to see the entire disk of the moon inside the disk of the sun. I may do this. Page is too far for me. I remember someone observing inside the Sunset Crater National Monument. Is there a charge to get in? I imagine there is. Are there any localities near it where I could set up the same day of the eclipse? Thanks.
