The Great American Total Solar Eclipse is coming, and you'll want to make plans now to see it.

Monday, August 21, 2017 is D-day for the eclipse, which will be the first significant total eclipse of the sun visible across the United States since 1970. Unfortunately, viewing of this total solar eclipse will be within a 70-mile wide band stretching from Oregon the South Caroline. Here in Michigan, we'll have a partial eclipse of about 75 to 80%. So, to see it completely, you'll have to travel.

To learn all about it, Dave DeBruyn, curator emeritus of the Roger Be Chaffee Planetarium, and TV13 Chief Meterorologist George Lessons are making a presentation tomorrow night, Thursday, November 17, at 7 p.m. in the Meijer Theater of the Grand Rapids Public Museum, and admission to the presentation is FREE.

DeBruyn and Lessons will talk about where to locate the best viewing, what to look for along with useful tips for all eclipse chasers. Should be very interesting.
