The skies will begin to darken in parts of Kershaw County at 1:13 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21 as the Moon begins to eclipse the Sun. The total eclipse will start at 2:42 p.m. and last anywhere from about a minute and a half, depending on where somewhere is standing. It’ll all be over by 4:06 p.m. Not everyone in Kershaw County will get the full effect of what is being called the Great American Eclipse. According to, the website for Astronomy magazine, the eclipse is being called that because “The Moon’s shadow will race across the continental United States from Oregon to South Carolina.”
