Save the Date - Total Solar Eclipse 2017

  • Save the Date! North America will experience a total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017. We are in luck as the path of totality is VERY close to us! But, here's how crazy it is - downtown STL, including the Arch, Busch Stadium, etc. are NOT in the path at all! To see it, we need to go south. I suggest we caravan to Festus, MO where we will be able to experience a full 2 minutes 36 seconds of totality.

    The eclipse's partial phase begins right before noon that day (11:49am) and totality will begin at 1:17pm.

    This is a BIG DEAL so it's going to be crazy. People from all over the world will be coming to our area to view the eclipse. I suggest an early start to Festus to give us plenty of drive time. We can picnic and chill.

    Keep an eye on this website for additional information: http://www.eclipse2017.org/2017/communities/states/MO/Festus_599.htm# You can even order your eclipse viewing sunglasses on this website!

    More planning and information as we get closer to the date.
