Total Solar Eclipse: How Much We'll See And When In Winnetka, Glencoe

NEW TRIER TOWNSHIP, IL — Excitement is building in Winnetka and Glencoe for the April 8 total solar eclipse. We’re not among some 32 million Americans living in the path of totality, but neither will we miss out on the celestial sensation.

In the United States, the path of totality extends from Texas to Maine, but each of the 48 continental states will see some of the solar eclipse, which occurs when the moon slips between our bright star and Earth. In Winnetka and Glencoe, the moon will cover about 92.8 percent of the sun at the peak of the eclipse, according to a NASA map that is searchable by ZIP code.

Here are the details:
Partial eclipse begins: 12:51 p.m.
Near-Totality begins: 1:33 p.m.
Maximum: 2:07 p.m.
Near-Totality ends: 2:41 p.m.
Partial ends: 3:21 p.m.
