A total solar eclipse can be expected in North America for the first time since 2017 and experienced in Michigan for the first time since 1954 on April 8th. In this expert Q&A, University of Michigan astronomer and physicist David Gerdes, urges those who can to get to the path to totality as it will be likely another 75 years before those in Michigan will experience it again.
