August 21, 2017: Total Eclipse USA by KaufmanK

Question 11

In the west, the eclipse will be total in the morning, so you will have to look somewhat eastward to see the sun. In the east, totality hits in the afternoon, so you will have to look somewhat to the west. Inbetween, there is a city of over 100,000 population, home to a university that's the largest in its state, where you will be able to face due south (and up) and see the eclipsed sun. Oh, and there's another city further east, also in the path of totality, that is of similar population, is home to the largest university in its state, and has the same name as the first city. What name do these two cities share?

Columbia (MO and SC)
