"My husband and son are fascinated by anything to do with space and our solar system", she said.

"This is going to be fun", Brown said.

People in MI will be able to see a partial eclipse, not a full one.

During the flight, guests will be suspended within the path of totality. That includes areas from western North Carolina through SC from Greenville to Columbia and Charleston.

Unfortunately, the New York Public Library will not be participating in this program, according to a library spokesperson.

"This is still an excellent opportunity to watch one of the most dramatic demonstrations of the mechanics of the heavens that is possible to view", says Franklin Institute's head astronomer Derrick Pitts.

In Michigan, 75 to 90 percent of the eclipse will be visible, meaning the moon will block 75 to 90 percent of the sun.

The eclipse will start in Sherman at 11:40 a.m. on August 21, and will be at its peak at 1:09 p.m.

Don't look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device - even using your eclipse glasses or viewer.

The 2017 eclipse in either total or partial phase can be seen by over 500 million people in North and South America, Europe, and Africa.

"I'm already looking forward to it", Eakins said.

Miami residents may be a little bummed to learn we are not in the path of totality, representing a 70-mile wide path of the country that includes cities like Salem, Oregon; Nashville, Tennessee; and Columbia, South Carolina.

Staring into the eclipse, even for a minute, can cause serious risk and eye injury. NASA recommends buying a filtering device that protects your eyes.

Buyers beware! Some vendors are selling counterfeit eclipse glasses that aren't certified.

Use them to look at the lights in your home.

But what if you want to snap some photos and document the astronomical event. According to PTI, Indians will be able to see the eclipse until the morning on Tuesday, August 8.
