Staffer Katie Gregory documented her trip to Missouri’s capital to witness the total solar eclipse August 21. The eclipse occurred at 1:13 pm in Jefferson City. Tourists flocked to the capital due to it being named the best spot to witness the eclipse in the state of Missouri. In Jefferson City totality lasted for a total of 2 minutes and 29 seconds. The state’s capital held an event which included music, merchandise advertising the eclipse, and food. Though partial solar eclipses are common, totality has not been visible in the continental United States since February 26, 1979. The next total solar eclipse which will be visible from the continental United States will be on April 8, 2024.
