Two Solar Eclipses
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.
