People all across the region attempted to catch a glimpse of the total solar eclipse yesterday—often through cloudy and at times stormy weather. Sam Zeff, of the Kansas News Service, spoke with sky watchers from around the world who gathered in the small town of Sabetha, Kansas about an hour north of Topeka.
