Explore the map and click on any destination to get length of totality and eclipse start times. All times are listed in UTC so you will need to adjust the start time for the St. Louis area by subtracting 5 hours from the listed time (eg. 18:16:50 pm = 1:16:50 pm CST)
The St. Louis Eclipse Task force has been working since 2014 to raise awareness of the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. Our task force includes leaders from over 100 organizations such as schools, cities, parks, associations and businesses. In 2016, we delivered more than 100 programs to area schools, libraries, cities, parks and business to raise awareness of this historic event which has not happened in St. Louis since the year 1442.

How's this for an opportunity. Over 43 million people live in large metro areas outside of the eclipse path where St. Louis is the closest large city. Included in this analysis are most large upper midwest cities and some from Texas. St. Louis could be their destination.
