2292 Old State Highway A, Festus, MO
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.

More planning and information as we get closer to the date.
It will be nice to get to meet others who think like me which is hard to do in the Midwest.
To meet like minded Free Thinkers and inject a little sanity and reality into my life.
