Parts of Kansas City, Kansas, could receive 23 seconds of "totality" - the phrase being used for a total solar eclipse - as compared to 2 minutes or more for Atchison, Kan., and St. Joseph, Mo. The city's Department of Livability and Tourism expects traffic to reach unprecedented volumes following the eclipse as visitors and residents attempt to leave the peninsula at the same time. The next solar eclipse in Kansas will be in 2045, according to local officials. That the moon is an irregular body, and especially along the edge, along the outer rim during an eclipse, there are going to be mountains and valleys, and so depending on where the sun disappears from where you are, maybe it disappears behind a mountain, in which case the eclipse starts early for you. Blair said the sun will not be fully uncovered again until 3:58 p.m. "I think these days people use the word "awesome" to mean cool or neat, but I think the word "awesome" was inspired by seeing a total eclipse".

Though the spectacle will be observed (through protective glasses and equipment, read about that below) best if skies are clear, people will still notice the great darkening of the sky during the eclipse peak even if it's cloudy. Just do not forget to wear your eclipse safety glasses for all stages of the eclipse before and after totality! You'll need them to safely view the partial phase of the eclipse directly. The app maker suggests you can instead use the filter in the app, and your smartphone camera to look up at the sun.
Remember, you can not substitute sunglasses for solar viewing glasses and if you look directly at the eclipse with your naked eyes, you may cause serious eye damage.
A limited supply of free eclipse glasses are also available from the Brookings Public Library (limit two per family).
