Two Solar Eclipses

Don't have time to see the April 8, 2024 "Total" Solar Eclipse?
Too bad!! The next "Great American Eclipse" is August 12, 2045 
and only a tiny sliver of southwest Missouri will be in the path of "Totality".

October 14, 2023 Solar Eclipse

October 14th is an "annular" eclipse for portions of the USA but only a "partial" eclipse for Missouri.  While not a total eclipse, a partial eclipse is still an amazing experience and a good "practice" event for the April 8, 2024 "total" solar eclipse. 


"Total Eclipse Day" established in Missouri

The Missouri House of Representatives voted on April 18, 2023 to establish April 8, 2024 as "Total Eclipse Day" in Missouri.

April 8, 2024 Solar Eclipse

The April 8, 2024 solar eclipse will provide portions of southeast Missouri with a "Total" Solar Eclipse with nearly double the length of totality experienced in the August 2017 "Great American Eclipse".
