On Monday, Aug. 21, a solar eclipse will be visible when the moon passes between the earth and the sun. All of Missouri will see the moon cover at least 90 percent of the sun at the peak of the eclipse. In Missouri, the moon will begin its transit across the sun shortly after 11:30 a.m. Totality will occur after 1 p.m. Solar eclipse viewing glasses will be available for purchase (while supplies last), and pinhole projectors will be available at the roof plaza. Nature observation stations will be located at the Dr. Bill Roston Native Butterfly House and at the Purple Martin House near the Hosta Garden. Concessions will be available, and there will be live streaming of the eclipse from NASA inside the meeting room at the Botanical Center.
