  A celestial event that astronomy fans have been anticipating for years, Monday’s solar eclipse will block out the sun in a path that crosses the nation from Oregon to South Carolina.

While the First Coast isn’t in the path of total darkness,  it should still be something to experience, experts say.

  Today on “First Coast Connect,” we discussed the negative reaction from several Florida Republican politicians to President Donald Trump’s most recent comments on the Charlottesville tragedy and possible reaction to Jacksonville’s considering removing Confederate monuments from public places with University of North Florida political science Professor Matt Corrigan (1:06). Ahead of Monday’s Great American Eclipse, we were joined by Jacksonville University associate physics Professor Brian Lane; NASA Solar System Ambassador Bharath Muthyala; Museum of Science and History planetarium Director Eddie Whisler and Dr. Arun Gulani, Director of the Gulani Vision Institute (16:09). Resident News publisher Seth Williams talked about the importance of neighborhood and small-town newspapers (34:20), and WJCT television producer Carlos Bouvier gave us a preview of Thursday’s edition of “Hometown.” (42:32)
