Missouri 2017 State Map

Missouri is well known as the Show Me State. They will receive quite a show on August 21, 2017! After the eclipse crosses many sparsely populated regions of the American west, the eclipse finally reaches cities with significant populations. St. Joseph on the Missouri River is smack on the centerline and will enjoy a generous 2 minutes and 38 seconds of totality. The southern edge of totality splits Kansas City with the northern suburbs and the nearby city of Independence under the Moon's shadow. However, the citizens of Kansas City would be encouraged to head a bit north on Interstate 35 to increase eclipse duration from less than a minute to 2 minutes and 38 seconds near Lathrop or St Joseph. This day trip would be well worth the effort as every second of totality will be valuable.

In the central section of Missouri, Marshall, Boonville, and Columbia are well positioned to experience over 2 minutes and 30 seconds of the total solar eclipse. Jefferson City will see 2 minutes and 27 seconds of totality.

St. Louis has a similar situation as Kansas City and is bisected by the northern limit of totality. Again, citizens of St. Louis would be smart to head south on Interstate 55 to Festus (2 minutes and 37 seconds) or St. Genevieve (2 minutes and 40 seconds) near the centerline of the eclipse. Although Cape Girardeau is closer to the edge of the eclipse path than the center line, it still experiences a respectable 1 minute and 41 seconds under the Moon's shadow. The Moon's shadow races across Missouri at about 1,900 miles per hour!
