There is a tiny southwest
part of Iowa, right between the states of Nebraska and Missouri, that will be
touched by the path of totality.
The area that will be under the Moon’s shadow is, unfortunately, really small and hardly reachable for total eclipse lovers. Iowans and their guests are advised to drive to the neighboring states of Missouri or Nebraska and to enjoy the sight of the total solar eclipse. The position of Iowa in regards to the path of totality is still extraordinary. Keep in mind the distance between Des Moines and St. Genevieve, the place that’s the center of the path and also a place where the duration reaches its maximum, is only 395.97 miles.. When you compare this to the vast total of the entire planet, it seems just a short distance to travel for such a spectacular sight.
For those who will decide
to enjoy the unique adventure of experiencing this celestial event in the small
corner of Iowa, we wish you:
