ST. LOUIS —  The Great American Eclipse will pass over the U.S. today.  Many cities near St. Louis will see a total eclipse.

Most people won’t notice the sky getting dark until after noon.  A total eclipse will happen after 1:15pm for several cities in a 70 mile wide path to the south of St. Louis. But even if you won’t have 100 percent of the sun obscured by the moon, there’s still a lot to see, if you know when to look.
