VIEW OF A LIFETIME Where to Watch the Great American Eclipse

On August 21, 2017, the greatest show of the summer will take place all across the United States: a total solar eclipse. For a brief period, viewers in certain areas will be able to behold a complete obstruction of the sun by the moon, creating a halo of light around the celestial body. The eclipse will be visible throughout North America, but the path of totality — the area where the moon completely covers the sun — will only fall in the continental U.S., leading this massive cosmic event to be called the Great American Eclipse.

A total solar eclipse is definitely an experience not to be missed. It’s not every day (actually, not even every 20 years) that we get the chance to watch the sun become progressively covered up by the moon until, at the peak of totality, the sky goes totally dark and a faint circle of light forms a blazing corona around the black disk of the moon.

The shadow of the

moon will pass over the northeast corner of Kansas at

approximately 1:06 p.m. CST. The northern suburbs of Kansas City will be able to enjoy the eclipse, but we encourage Kansans to make a quick road trip to the north or east of the state to increase the view of the totality. Points near St. Joseph, Missouri, will enjoy up to 2 minutes and 39 seconds of total sun blockage, making it one of the best places to watch this incredible natural event. Head to stjomo.com/eclipse2017 to plan your trip.

Luckily for us Kansas Citians, we’ll have a front-row seat just to the north of St. Joe!
