Here's the exact time the eclipse will be over your city

Millions of eyes will be watching the sky as the treat of a total solar eclipse of the sun happens Aug. 21.

Even if you aren't in the path of totality, you will still get a show to remember.

Although Kentuckiana isn't in its direct path, we will still be able to experience the celestial moment.

In the Louisville area, we will see 95.75% of the sun covered during the eclipse. Take a trip southwest of here, Hopkinsville, and you will have a better view with 100% of the sun blocked.

NASA has created a fantastic interactive map that lets you zoom into different parts of the country to find out -- down to a tenth of a second -- when the eclipse will begin, when you'll see totality (the moment the moon moves completely in front of the sun) and when the eclipse will end.
