2024 Eclipse Overlay?

I’m going to be traveling to the eclipse next month. It would be awesome of I could see the eclipse path as an overlay on OSM. Maybe there’s a way to import all eclipse paths from nasa, past future and present from some ATOM or JSON feed so nobody’s manually drawing lines. Or perhaps there’s just a formula anyone can use to calculate the path of all eclipses.

I’ve traveled before for eclipses and there’s surprisingly few street/highway maps that include eclipse paths! Zero that show eclipse on navigation apps.

But I use highway, eclipse path, topographical, and cloud data as a passenger while we’re in the car on the morning of the eclipse, to try to find a nice high spot with a great view of the path.

Would eclipse paths be welcome on OSM being they’re not a feature, physically speaking, of terrestrial Earth?
