The shadow of the moon will track over parts of Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina. The total eclipse will begin near Newport, Oregon at 1:16 PM EDT and will end near Charleston, South Carolina at 2:48 PM EDT.  A partial eclipse will occur for the rest of the United States. The next total eclipse that can be seen from a large portion of the United States will not occur until 2024. The next total eclipse that can be seen from the west coast to the east coast will be in 2045. For southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks, most areas will see between 94 to 99 percent eclipse of the sun midday on Monday, August, 21, 2017. The only areas that will see total 100% eclipse of the sun will be across central Missouri...roughly from the St. Joe and north Kansas City area to Jefferson City to south of St Louis.
