Total Solar Eclipse Coming 2024

POPLAR BLUFF STATS
Start of Totality: 1:56:14 P.M.  |  Duration of Totality: 4 minutes 8 seconds

 

On April 8, 2024, Missouri will once again be in the path of totality, which will cut across the Southeast part of the state, in particular Poplar Bluff. At 4 minutes and 8 seconds, Poplar Bluff will have more time in totality than any other sizable community. This time the sun’s shadow will start in Mexico and sweep northeast, entering Texas, moving across the Heartland through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois, then on through Indiana, Ohio, and up into the northeast, completing its journey in Canada. The path of totality will be wider, the duration of totality will be longer, and the number of people residing within the band of totality will be nearly three times as great as in 2017. We will even get an eclipse ‘preview’ with a partial annular eclipse visible throughout Missouri on October 14, 2023! (Source: moeclipse.org)

Poplar Bluff will be your hotspot for viewing and celebrating! Stay tuned for more details to come! Follow our official Facebook page here.
