    Maybe, I have a billboard on I40 in Tenn and it might be a good reason to check it out!!! According to the map that will be a prime location.

    Thank you very much for your generous support!!!
    I was using the word in the concept of having a camera in the payload and having it transmit live video to the ground where it is streamed to the internet. I am not 100% sure what platform we will be using on the eclipse day, but we will have it on at least one streaming service.
