As someone who spent most of her career in international business, Joann Bundock has seen some amazing sights all over the world, but she’s headed home to her native Kentucky to see something else pretty spectacular-the first total solar eclipse to travel the width of North America in 99 years.
“My husband woke me up one morning and said ‘We’re going to Kentucky. There’s going to be a total eclipse of the sun and it’s going right over your family’s farm in Kentucky,'" Bundock told WKU Public Radio. "This has been on his bucket list forever.”
The couple from Toronto, Canada will be among the sea of humanity rolling into western and southern Kentucky this weekend. NASA estimates that as many as half-a-million people will converge on the region.
