Memphis expects to see 94 percent totality

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Mid-South won't have the perfect view of the upcoming eclipse, but it won't be terrible either.

On August 21, what is being dubbed the "Great American Eclipse" will put a whole path of our country in the dark.

The Mid-South is not in the path of totality, but we will see a 94 percent eclipse. Meaning the moon will nearly totally eclipse the sun.

The event will take place August 21 around 1:24 p.m. Be sure to get some eclipse glasses, if you want to stare up and see the eclipse yourself.
