Eclipse in Michigan: When to watch in specific cities

Eclipse moving west to east Monday

Headline Goes Here NASA

The eclipse will be moving west to east on Monday. 

Michigan will not be in the path of totality -- it's much too far north -- but there will be a partial eclipse visible in the mitten state. The moon will cover about 80 percent of the sun in Michigan. 

DO NOT look at the sun, however, without special glasses. It doesn't matter what kind of anecdotal evidence you may have from previous eclipses -- why take the risk of harming your vision forever?

Watch eclipse live stream

If you don't feel like going outside and waiting for the partial eclipse in Michigan, be sure to watch the live stream here on ClickOnDetroit. We will have a stream of the eclipse from the path of totality. 

"Solar Eclipse: Through the Eyes of NASA" 

NASA will offer hours of coverage online (available here on ClickOnDetroit) and on NASA Television beginning at noon Eastern. It plans livestreaming of the eclipse beginning at 1 p.m. EDT with images from satellites, research aircraft, high-altitude balloons and specially modified telescopes.

Next eclipse is April 8, 2024

A better opportunity for Michiganders to see a total solar eclipse is April 8, 2024, when the path of totality could make its way into Toledo, Ohio. If you want to wait another seven years, that will be a much quicker drive for anyone who wants to see the total solar eclipse firsthand.
