Total Solar Eclipse Path over Northeast Kansas!
For the first time since 1918, a total solar eclipse will be passing over the transcontinental United States of America from coast to coast on August 21, 2017! Lucky for us, the path of totality will be slicing through the northeast corner of our state!
The path of the eclipse is only 70 miles wide. If you are in the eclipse path at all, you will experience a total solar eclipse. However, the closer you are to the centerline of the eclipse path, the longer the total solar eclipse will last.
Kansas is a prime destination for you and your family to come view this once in a lifetime solar eclipse! The maximum amount of viewing time for the total solar eclipse in the USA on August 21, 2017 will be 2 min 40 seconds. The longest amount of time in Kansas will be 2 minutes 38 seconds in Doniphan County! The next eclipse won’t come to Kansas until August 12, 2045, where it will be passing through the southwest corner of the state.
Check out the counties within the paths of the eclipse and their information. Feel free to contact their chambers or visitor bureaus to learn what they are planning!
Don’t forget that you will need special glasses to safely view the eclipse! Don’t miss out on this great experience!
