Moon’s shadow will step onto the Kansas soil at 01:02 PM, CDT, leaving behind
the state of Nebraska.
It will cover the small northeast corner of Kansas but will include three cities: Hiawatha, Atchison and Leavenworth. Although these cities are on the path itself, people of Kansas might want to choose to go to St. Joseph, Missouri, where the duration of the total eclipse scene will be 2 minutes and 39 seconds, which is near the maximum for this August’s solar eclipse! Habitants of this area will need to drive less than 50 miles to north or east to prolong their unique solar eclipse experience.
