The Rare Natural Phenomenon In Montana That Will Go Down In History

Unless you’ve been completely off the grid lately, you’ve most likely heard about the total solar eclipse making its way across the country on August 21. This eclipse is the first of its kind in nearly a century, and it’s being called the “Great American Eclipse” because it will only be visible from the USA.

Montana may not be on the path of totality (although that’s debatable – there may be a tiny fraction of Southwest Montana that sees it, according to this), but that doesn’t mean the eclipse won’t be visible from the Treasure State. Here’s everything you need to know about this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
