Johnson says viewers will notice a small notch out of the sun around 4:30 pm. About an hour later nearly half of the sun will eclipse. He says the sun will still eclipse when it sets around 6:30 so there should be fantastic coloring and unusual shadows
Johnson says even though part of the sun is blocked by the moon it is still very dangerous to look at. The Omaha Astronomical Society is setting up telescopes with special filters at Zorinsky Lake at 4:30 until sunset so the public can safely view the eclipse.
