We’re excitedly counting down the days until the solar eclipse that will occur on August 21, 2017. While we won’t see a total eclipse here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy viewing the partial eclipse (about 80 percent coverage) that will be visible at approximately 1:30 p.m. CST.
