Join us in Boonville, MO, August 18th through the 21st to witness the total solar eclipse, an event that will not happen again until 2024.

On August 21st at 11:44 AM Central, Boonville will be front-row center to an epic celestial event: the first total solar eclipse visible from all U.S. mainland states since 1979.

Boonville, MO makes for an ideal viewing spot because it’s located directly under the centerline of the total eclipse’s path through Missouri, giving Boonville one of the longest viewing times in the state at 2 minutes and 39 seconds.
