GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — We are officially one week away from arguably the biggest celestial event of the century.
In West Michigan, here is what you need to know to get ready for the Aug. 21 solar eclipse.
WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE HERE
Michigan is outside of the path of totality, which means the sun won’t be fully blocked by the moon during the eclipse. Depending on where you live in West Michigan, the sun will be 75 percent to 85 percent covered during peak eclipse time, which will take place in the Eastern time zone from 2:10 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Google has created a simulator that allows you see what the eclipse will look like depending on location.
