GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - A public viewing for the Swiss-made solar-powered plane now pausing in Arizona while making a globe-circling flight will be held Saturday at an airport in a Phoenix suburb.

Flight officials say the general public can register online at www.eventbrite.com to attend the 10 a.m.-4 p.m. event at the Phoenix Goodyear Airport.

The single-seat Solar Impulse 2 landed Monday night after a 16-hour flight from the San Francisco area.

Flight officials say it hasn’t yet been decided when the plane will leave Goodyear or where it’ll stop next as it travels eastward across the United States. Officials say those decisions depend on wind and weather patterns and that the first possible departure date is Monday.

The journey began in 2015.
