Viewers in parts of the South and West might get a better view, but a partial eclipse of the sun will be visible -- weather permitting -- in Minnesota beginning after 7 p.m. Sunday until it sets at roughly 8:40 p.m. But don't look directly at it! Columnist and local amateur astronomer Mike Lynch has a helpful diagram of how to watch the event using the pinhole projection method.
