Unfortunately we won't see the total eclipse in Michigan until April 2024 when the edge will hit the tip of Southeast Michigan so even then one would need to go into Ohio to see it.

Yea I heard that too. Apparently people have had reserved rooms for years waiting for this though.

If I decide to go see it, I can bunk with my roommate's relatives in Ohio.  I am considering it.

How deep in Ohio do they anticipate you have to go to see it?

Looking at the map showing the info, pretty much anywhere south of Toledo.  Check your link.  Towards the bottom of the page there is a map showing the coverage area to see the total eclipse.  The outer edge to the total eclipse appears to include Toledo and may cross into Michigan just south of Luna Pier, basically near the Ohio border.

If it's a Wednesday you can go to Bowling Green for their goth night.  It's like the goth version of Russian roulette since there's a 1/7 chance of that happening.

Every year i think maybe THIS year ill be able to go on a trip to see it wherever they are (often they are over the ocean) just the locations being in the US is a little bit of a thing plus one of the areas is national park territory so youd have that 'with nature' (animals get quiet in a goosebumbs sort of way). But guess what... not free. Damn.

You can see the sight of the massacre while you are there.

The Bowling Green massacre is a fictitious incident alluded to by U.S. Counselor to the PresidentKellyanne Conway in interviews with Cosmopolitan and TMZ on January 29, 2017, and in an interview on the MSNBC news program Hardball with Chris Matthews on February 2, 2017. Conway cited it as justification for a travel and immigration ban from seven Muslim-majority countries enacted by United States President Donald Trump.

Oh, I was thinking Kent State for some reason.

 

 I forgot about this alternative fact.  At least I might be able to go look at the sign someone made.

Very interesting. I would love to see this. I saw one as a child but barely remember it. Seeing it as an adult would be great.

I recorded it with an RCA camcorder one year.  Burned in the lens but that eventually healed and went away.  Had a welding mask so that worked out okay.
