by Don Ficken, St. Louis Eclipse Task Force

Our St. Louis Eclipse Task Force was contacted by the North American Sundial Society who wanted information about where their members might see the eclipse while they are in St. Louis for their 2017 annual conference.  Don Synder, retired Washington University Professor and a St. Louis member of the society, explained that NAAS scheduled their conference in St. Louis specifically so members could see the eclipse.  Don expects about 40 members to participate in the annual conference.  They plan to charter a bus to visit the location they choose.  They have already contacted St. Louis County Parks, Cahokia Mounds and YMCA Trout Lodge in Potosi, MO.  The society plans to make their decision in the next few months.
