The lodging app has teamed up with National Geographic to launch an essay contest, and the grand prize is a stay in a luxury tent on the Pacific coast (in the eclipse's path of totality) and a front-row seat to the eclipse as it sweeps across the continent.
Winners will join an astrophysicist and a night-sky photographer in a private jet for a view of the eclipse from the sky.
Essays must discuss how the eclipse will bring people together. They can be submitted on Airbnb's website.
