It won't really miss, it just won't be a full eclipse as viewed from the playa.

We could all go to Wyoming instead.

War And Peace

Think about it! It's politically interesting, it's a great excuse to be a total hippie or blow shit up, and we can have confusing street names named after Russian literature characters. It's awesome.

Fly Ranch would be OK if they gave up on the current city shape. Just scatter round pods of mini-cities all across that smaller playa and have the art interspersed between.

I seem to remember them saying they didn't have any intention of moving it to fly ranch, but seems like it would be possible.
