2024 ECLIPSE IN CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI

Total Solar EclipseOn April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will occur in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The 2024 eclipse misses any major population centers in its journey through the southeastern corner of Missouri, making Cape Girardeau, population 40,000, the largest city with a ticket to the totality party in the state. The city is located very close to the eclipse centerline, with the duration of totality breaking the 4-minute mark at about 4 minutes and 6 seconds in the downtown area. Cape Girardeau was also in the path of the historic 2017 total solar eclipse, but with a totality duration that clocked in at less than 2 minutes back then, the 2024 edition promises to delight the city for over twice as long. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Cape Girardeau for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
