Special Eclipse Coverage

The excitement has been building for weeks and weeks. On Monday, August 21, the solar eclipse will finally be here. It will darken the skies along a path from Oregon to South Carolina. It's the first eclipse that will be seen from coast to coast in 99 years. Millions will don special glasses or watch through pinhole projectors. Eclipse enthusiasts say totality never disappoints. So, NPR is planning two hours of live broadcast Special Coverage.

Join hosts Robin Young and Meghna Chakrabarti from Noon to 2 p.m. on KPR2 as the eclipse crosses the country. They'll hear from eclipse chasers, scientists, first-time observers and reporters across the nation.

Here are approximate times (all times Eastern) for the viewing: The total eclipse starts in Salem, Oregon, at 1:18 p.m. It moves on to Idaho Falls, Idaho, by 1:33 p.m., Casper, Wyoming, at 1:43 p.m. Then to Lincoln, Nebraska, at 2:02 p.m.; Jefferson City, Missouri, at 2:13 p.m.; Carbondale, Illinois, at 2:20 p.m.; Paducah, Kentucky, at 2:22 p.m.; Nashville, Tennessee, at 2:27 p.m.; Talulah Falls, Georgia, at 2:37 p.m.; Columbia, South Carolina, at 2:41 p.m.; and Charleston, South Carolina, at 2:45 p.m. Eastern Time.
