Monday will mark the first total solar eclipse in nearly 40 years across the United States. While Michigan and metro Detroit won't see the entire total solar eclipse, it's expected we will see between 75-85 percent of it.

For metro Detroit, the solar eclipse will begin around 1:03 p.m. when the moon touches the sun's edge. The maximum eclipse will happen at 2:27 p.m. when the moon is closed to the center of the sun.

It will all come to an end at 3:47 p.m. when the moon leaves the sun's edge.
