It’s total solar eclipse day! Here’s a playlist for your entertainment

The rare event is here: A total solar eclipse will be visible to millions of Americans, including those of us here in Southwest Ohio. To celebrate, Cox Enterprises media outlet Axios has put together a Spotify playlist to listen to throughout the day.

The total solar eclipse is expected at various times in the local region, with many seeing the darkness begin just before 2 p.m. and leave before 4:30 p.m. Totality times vary but are largely between 3:08-3:12 p.m. To find exact times for your city or township, go here.
