Missourians will have plenty of options in choosing where to watch the historic solar eclipse next month.
The first total solar eclipse in almost 40 years happens Aug. 21. According to the Missouri Department of Conservation, 54 different areas lie within the solar eclipse’s primary path, “the path of totality,” when it darkens a line across Missouri.
During the eclipse, visitors at these conservation areas can fish, hike, and watch wildlife. Additionally, according to Conservation Department, the eclipse will also bring a unique opportunity to watch wildlife partake in “out-of-the-ordinary” behaviors.
The last time the United States saw a total eclipse was in 1979, according to NASA.
