Myrtle Beach, SC - August 21, 2017. The big day in the sky has finally arrived! In a few hours, daytime in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina will be completely dark from the total solar eclipse. Visitors from throughout the US, especially the east coast and midwest, lined up to purchase their certified glasses for $4.99. They were originally selling for $14.99 but as the once in a generation solar event got closer, prices drop considerably. After all, who wants to get stuck with hundreds of these glasses the day after. I'm ready to see the eclipse from this prime location. Will let you know later what it was like.
