Eclipse watchers may need to travel to see the total solar eclipse Monday, but all Ohioans will have a decent view no matter where they are.

What to expect: The partial eclipse will begin in the Columbus area at 1:52pm and end at 4:27pm.

  • The moon's shadow will enter the state at 3:08pm and exit at 3:19pm, with a total eclipse lasting in each place just a few minutes depending on the location.
  • In nearby Delaware County, for example, maximum totality is at 3:12pm and will last around 2 minutes, 30 seconds.

The weather forecast: It will be partly sunny in Columbus on Monday, with a high near 70.

To ensure safe viewing, you must wear eclipse glasses or viewers that meet international standard ISO 12312-2.
