The total eclipse will be seen within a 70-mile-wide spanning across the country from Oregon to South Carolina, and although most of Montana isn't in the path of totality, there are still some places where you can go in Southwestern Montana to experience the eclipse.

According to OnlyInYourState.com, we'll see 92% of the sun blocked by the moon during the eclipse. In Billings, that rises to 93%. For Montanans, the prime viewing time will be around 11:30 a.m on August 21st. If you decide to watch, wearing protective eye wear is recommended. You can purchase them on Amazon.
