2023 Solar Eclipse

An "annular" eclipse for portions of North America, but only a "partial" eclipse for Missouri and most of North America.


The October 14, 2023 annular solar eclipse will be visible in Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.  

Sadly, Missouri is not in the direct path of the annular eclipse and will experience a "partial eclipse" instead.  But the event will be important to Missouri, serving as a warm-up event for the April 8, 2024 Total Solar Eclipse. Eclipse chasers will need to go through all the planning steps needed for a total solar eclipse, and have all the equipment in hand.
