The Today Show tweeted out a quick little graphic about the eclipse Friday morning. 

It showed the path across the United States for next month’s much-hyped event.  

But for some reason… it doesn’t highlight Idaho — despite the path going right over the top.

(In fairness, the show picked out a few cities to highlight on the path and didn’t happen to pick an Idaho one… but graying out the state still looks… odd).

The graphic also skips Illinois, Kentucky and North Carolina – but the widest left-out expanse is definitely Idaho.

The “gaffe” is the number two trending topic in Boise, according to Trendsmap (behind “Spicer”).

 

The oversight left social media users in Idaho feeling a little… salty.

Even the newsies got into it:

A space pun about space things:

Double points for the Philo reference and the prison pun:

Hashtag client?

I’ve got a shirt for ya, Today Show:

For the record, the eclipse still will zip over Idaho a month today. And it will be awesome.
