Southeast Missouri A Good Spot To View The Next Eclipse

(Farmington) A total solar eclipse will cross North America two years from now and NASA says southeastern Missouri should have one of the best viewing spots.

A total solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, completely blocking the face of the sun.

The sky will turn dark in the middle of the day on April eighth, 2024.

The last total solar eclipse was in 2017 and crossed northwest to southeast over the Show-Me State.
