The path of the total eclipse will start near the coastal town of Lincoln Beach, Ore., at 12:16 p.m. CDT. Then it will move across the state and on to Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia before heading out to sea near Charleston, S.C., at 1:48 p.m. CDT. The path of totality does not cross Minnesota, but residents can still see a partial eclipse, with prime viewing at 1:06 p.m. Don’t forget to wear protective eclipse glasses. You can damage your eyes staring at the sun, even the slimmest sliver of it.
