MO Solar Eclipse 2017

Flyer 1 Black_bg l


For the first time since Aug. 7, 1869 (That's 148 years!) a total solar eclipse will come to Missouri, and, weather permitting, the next one will be even better than the last one. The 1869 eclipse only clipped the northeast corner of our state. The 2017 eclipse will begin its sweep from the northwest corner to Cape Girardeau (see eclipse map). Depending upon where you are in the state, the eclipse will begin between 11:30 a.m. and noon. It will continue until between 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Observers within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk. Here you will find activities, events, broadcasts, and resources from the Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources:
