C1:Partial Eclipse begins
C2:TOTAL ECLIPSE BEGINS (When no bright part of the Sun is visible, you can look without eye protection!)
Mid:Middle of the eclipse (the middle of the total phase)
C3:TOTAL ECLIPSE ENDS (Once any bright part of the Sun is again visible, you must use eye protection to safely view the partial phases of the eclipse)
C4:Partial Eclipse ends
Duration:The duration of totality in this location (in minutes and seconds)
Coverage:How much of the Sun is covered at mid-eclipse
IF YOU SEE NO VALUES FOR C2 and C3, you have ONLY a partial eclipse and you MUST USE EYE PROTECTION to watch the ENTIRE eclipse!
In every case, you MUST ALWAYS use eye protection any time any bright part of the Sun is visible, regardless of the times shown in the above table!
(All times are local, in CDT)


THE ECLIPSE IS ONLY TOTAL IN THE FAR SOUTHERN PART OF ILLINOIS!

YOU MUST ALWAYS USE PROPER EYE PROTECTION TO VIEW IT DURING THE PARTIAL PHASES!


A PARTIAL ECLIPSE IS BORING!!

WE RECOMMEND YOU GO INTO THE PATH TO SEE TOTALITY!
