Solar Eclipse 2017

St. Clair, Missouri is the only place the line of highest degree of solar occultation (maximum eclipse) crosses Route 66. This will occur August 21, 2017, at 1:17 in the afternoon. The eclipse will last for 2 minutes, 40 seconds, down on the south side within the city limits near the St. Clair High School. The St. Clair Chamber of Commerce will be heading up many events the preceeding weekend, and we're preparing for many of our visitors to stay over until midday Monday to see the show. We're only 52 miles west of the St. Louis Gateway Arch, and you never need to leave the interstate to get here! Come join us in 2017, and check back here as events develop!

Looking for nearby camping with some amenities: πŸŽ‰GREAT NEWS!πŸŽ‰ Meramec Caverns Campgrounds are officially open August 17th at 5pm. Perfect for last minute Eclipse watchers! Please share with those you know who may need last minute plans! 200+ campsites available! Call with any questions (573)468-2283.

This small business has been slammed the last three years from two sides: two floods--the second one almost incomprehensible in the damage which occurred-- and an ongoing not-their-faul EPA-trichlorethylene groundwater spill uphill which closed the cave for about 6 months last year. If you've got someone coming in with no place to stay: it's nearby and they will treat you or your guests right!

If you haven't been to stclaireclipse.com recently, we've given it a facelift, now that the eclipse is nearly upon us. Everything we could think of is there. Please look it over and email stclaireclipse@gmail.com with any suggestions, things that don't work for you, etc. Remember: this is for *out of towners* mostly. We want to present St. Clair in the best light while still being truthful. We also want to make it easy to find stuff...but not everything can be on the top page. Thanks.
