Making Plans for the Eclipse

Making Plans for the Eclipse

In exactly three weeks, a rare eclipse will happen occur over the United States.  This eclipse can be seen in totality in a diagonal line across the country, but can also be partially seen from most areas in the U.S. as well.  When I was in St. Louis last month, there was a lot of excited talk about this eclipse, as the city was directly in the path of totality.  This path stretches from Oregon across the U.S. to the…

Exploring St. Louis

Exploring St. Louis
