2023 Annular Solar Eclipse

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

October 14, 2023 Annular Eclipse

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.  

How to Get Estimated Eclipse Times for Your Location

Many websites provide eclipse times in Universal Time (UTC) which can make it difficult to determine the local eclipse times for your location. 

An easy way to get local eclipse times for your location is to visit the eclipse page on the TimeandDate.com website.  You can select the eclipse of interest (for example, the October 14th or April 8th eclipse), enter your location details in the "search city or place " box, and then get the local start and end times for your selected location.  If you can't find the location in the search box, you can use a clickable map to select your location.
