Observing HF Propagation on 20m from US West Coast to East Coast

Spent a few mins operating FT8, and PSKReporter is showing 2 very distinct bands of reception reports, at approx 1200 miles and 2400 miles to the East from my location in Davis, CA:

I’m guessing the first band is propagation with 1 hop and the second band on the East coast is the second hop. It very distinctly shows how in between these two areas there’s noticeable dead zones where I’m not being heard at all. Very interesting!
