MLive.com reports that the first total solar in almost 100 years August 21, 2017. We won't be able to see the TOTAL eclipse here in Michigan, but you can make a road trip to see it. And if you're hoping to see a total solar eclipse again anytime soon, that won't happen until 2099. Some of you may still be here.

MLive.com reports that the last total solar eclipse to trace across part of Michigan's Upper Peninsula was in 1954. Check out the details here.

If you want to make a spontaneous road trip to go see it, you may need camping gear, as a lot of people have booked trips along the expected path of the sun's track. Here's what MLive.com says about it. 

Space.com has a list here of some of the solar eclipse parties and festivals going on this weekend.
