An exciting time is almost among us all! A total Solar Eclipse will take place on Monday, August 21. The last time one has occurred was in 1979, so here’s some helpful information to prepare you to view it:
- The sun will be completely covered by the moon for 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
- It will be visible in a total of 38 states.
- Never look directly at the eclipse without proper eye wear because you could severely damage your sight.
The city of St. Joseph, MO will be directly along the path of the Solar Eclipse. You can learn more about it on the city’s website here. Have fun and be safe!
