The seventh state on the
path of totality, Missouri, will welcome the solar eclipse at 01:09 PM, CDT, on
August 21, 2017.
This American State, well known as the the ’Show Me State’ will be blessed with the longest total eclipse show of the day! Two major cities in Missouri will be honored to greet the solar eclipse: Kansas City, and St. Louis. However, what also makes this state one of the greatest choices for enjoying this celestial phenomenon is that it is the center of the path of totality! Here’s where the duration reaches its maximum, 2 minutes and 40 seconds, and this one-in-a-lifetime sight will be visible in the skies above the small town of St. Genevieve.
The Moon’s shadow will
pass over its 299 miles long path across the state of Missouri in just 12
minutes and 08 seconds. The area width is an average 70.7 miles and will have the pleasure
of being inside the path of totality. The umbra will leave Missouri behind at
01:21 PM, CDT, and continue its path across the America.
