In 2017:


On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will occur, and it will see the Moon’s shadow pass across the Pacific Ocean onto the coast of Oregon, and then proceed to fall across all of North America (as Earth rotates), finally entering the Atlantic Ocean on the South Carolina border. This will be the first total solar eclipse to touch the United States since the 1990s (when one occurred on Hawaii), and the first to cover it coast-to-coast since 1918!

In Missouri the eclipse path will start in St. Joseph, pass over Columbia and Jefferson City, De Soto and finally head into Illinois at Cape Girardeau. This unique event will provide Missouri a unique chance to host a series eclipse watching parties and puts our state on display.
