President Trump, Melania Trump to watch eclipse from White House balcony

Even President Trump and first lady Melania Trump are getting in on Monday's eclipse mania.

According to pool reports, the president and first lady, who returned Sunday from Bedminster, N.J., will watch the eclipse from the Truman balcony at the White House. The balcony is on the second floor of the residence and faces the south lawn.

From the White House, Trump will see the moon cover about 81% of the sun. The moon will be in the sun's path starting around 1:17 p.m. and continue for the next two hours and 43 minutes, per this eclipse interactive (type in your zip code to see when you should head outside).

The best time to see the peak of the eclipse from the White House will be around 2:42 p.m.

Trump will head to the balcony sometime after 2 p.m.
