April 8, 2024, Solar Eclipse

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".

"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.

Missouri Eclipse Grants

The State of Missouri is offering eclipse grants to 26 Missouri counties within the 2024 total solar eclipse “Path of Totality”.

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".
