The Today Show took to Twitter on Friday morning to share an animated map of the path the Great American Eclipse will take across the country in August. Except, they sort of forgot Idaho.
Idaho is among the 12 states that are in the path of totality and will provide solar eclipse watchers with some of the best viewing opportunities as thousands of people – including international visitors – are expected to descend on Idaho towns.
However, according to this map published by the Today Show, Idaho is invisible. The map draws a path from Oregon to Wyoming and on to Nebraska, but doesn’t highlight the Gem State in that path.
Here’s the tweet:

The Idaho Department of Commerce – Tourism Development has put together a lot of information about the path across Idaho, if you want to see what the map should actually look like!
Naturally, the twitterverse has a few words for the Today Show:
Idaho doesn't exist, you are correct. There is nothing there. Please stay away at all costs. With best regards Idahoans.

You realize that IDAHO Falls was listed by NASA as a premiere spot to see the eclipse…. right?
