DENVER (CBS4) – In less than a month a total solar eclipse will grace the skies over America and Southwest Airlines is offering flights with ‘flare’ to commemorate it.

Southwest officials have modeled the eclipse’s path against scheduled flights for August 21 and identified five that are most likely to offer passengers a front row view.

Three originate in Denver.
