While much of Wyoming will have today's partial solar eclipse obscured by cloud cover, the event will be more visible in Cheyenne and Laramie than in most other areas of the Cowboy State.

Wyoming is well out of the path of areas that will see a total eclipse, but a little more than half of the sun will be covered here.

That's according to the Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service. The agency posted the following on its website.

Although our area is not in the path of totality for the eclipse, 55 to 65 percent of the sun will still be covered. Cloud cover is not looking favorable for viewing the partial eclipse for areas north of Interstate 80 as showers linger across the area.

Protect Your Eyes If You View The Eclipse

It's worth mentioning one more time that it's not safe to view the eclipse without special glasses.

NASA posted this reminder on its website:

''When watching a partial or annular solar eclipse directly with your eyes, you must look through safe solar viewing glasses (“eclipse glasses”) or a safe handheld solar viewer at all times. Eclipse glasses are NOT regular sunglasses; regular sunglasses, no matter how dark, are not safe for viewing the Sun.''
