Metro Detroit will be home to multiple solar eclipse viewing parties, with live streams set up in places that won't have much eclipse coverage.
Across Michigan, 80 to 90 percent of the sun will be eclipsed. The very best spot in Michigan for viewing the eclipse is the extreme southwest corner of the state in New Buffalo and the villages of Grand Beach and Michigan.
Grand Rapids and Traverse City will experience an 85 percent eclipse.
