By now, you’ve probably heard something about this year’s total eclipse of the sun that cuts a path across the United States including—fortunately for us—right across the upper-central portion of Missouri.  This eclipse will be the first total solar eclipse visible from the United States since the solar eclipse of July 11, 1991 (which was only seen from a part of Hawaii), and the first visible from the contiguous United States since 1979. The last time a total eclipse crossed the United States from sea to sea was June 8, 1918, so this is truly a historic event and a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature’s most stunning displays.

On August 21st, approximately 11:46 am, the moon will begin passing between the earth and the sun. Approximately 1:13 pm, periods of totality—or complete darkness—will occur across the town.
