A total solar eclipse will happen Monday, Aug. 21, and parts of northeast Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska are among the best places to view it.
If you are planning to watch the eclipse, the experts say do it safely.
A solar eclipse happens when the moon blocks any part of the sun. In the Wichita area, a partial eclipse will be visible for about two to three hours midday.
Only communities in a 70-mile path from coast to coast will experience a total eclipse, where the moon will fully cover the sun for about two and a half minutes.
