Viewing the solar eclipse safely. Ali Gorman reports during Action News at 5 p.m. on August 16, 2017.

Portions of Texas, Illinois, Ohio, New York - and yes, even Pennsylvania - in the eclipse's path of totality.

Erie, Pennsylvania falls directly in the path of totality. But other areas of the state will experience a much better show considering our proximity to the path, compared to this year's eclipse.

So, mark your calendars!
