Ohioans Will Soon See the Next Solar Eclipse

Here's how you can prepare for it

Ohio is six months out from a total solar eclipse, but state officials say they’ve been planning for this moment for years.

"We started planning about four years ago and created a task of interested parties throughout Ohio," said Wayne Schlingman, planetarium director at The Ohio State University.

The last total solar eclipse to pass over the United States happened in 2017, drawing 21 million spectators, according to the University of Michigan. It's too soon to tell how many people will travel to Ohio's path of totality, but an influx of visitors is expected to flock to the central and northern areas of the state.
