Yes, Michigan is in the path of the Solar Eclipse for 2024.  Find out exactly where, when, and for how long.

The last time Michigan experienced a solar eclipse was in August of 2017.  I will never forget how strange it was to watch daytime become nighttime during mid-afternoon, then get light again.  In 2024, Michigan will not get nearly the amount of solar eclipse coverage as it did back in 2017.  However, a small corner of Michigan will get a piece of the action.
