Coming Monday, August 21, the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse is expected to be one of the most viewed astronomical events ever! It's the first eclipse that will be seen from coast to coast in 99 years.
With the path of totality (full darkness) stretching from Oregon to South Carolina, each of the 48 contiguous states will experience some percentage of the eclipse. In the Greater Cincinnati area, we will be around 90% coverage.
