Celebrate the April 8 eclipse Kansas City-style

You won’t have another chance to party it up under a partially covered sun until 2044.

We’re getting mooned next Monday. That is, Kansas Citians can look up and expect to see 90% of the Great North American solar eclipse around 2 p.m. on Monday, April 8 — the last solar eclipse in the lower 48 until 2044.

Not sure how to celebrate? Grab a pair of glasses and party like only KC can with these local space-themed listings.
