5:45 am
louis and over nashville tennessee, but for the most part it is located in small towns, forests, national parks, farmland, etc.. that means that the eclipse, in order to be visible for people, either you have to go into the eclipse zone or televise it from there. there are hundreds of thousands of people planning to go into the eclipse zone.>> reporter: when it comes to the west coast versus the east coast, we win. >> there have been studies made of the entitled -- entire total eclipse across the country. on the east coast on a typical early august afternoon there was a big chance of thunderstorms and clouds. most people, the best location turned out to be central oregon and idaho. that is where the cloud cover is likely to be the least.
