If you somehow missed the great total solar eclipse that crossed Missouri in August of 2017, you'll get another chance as one of the cities in the Show Me State is now one of the top 10 places to see the total solar eclipse in 2024.
There was an extraordinary display of the Aurora Borealis Thursday night as the colorful skies were visible much further south than expected. That resulted in the Northern Lights being visible even in Missouri as a new video share shows.
Thanks to a stronger than expected solar storm, the Northern Lights are visible Sunday night over northern Illinois. Thanks to a generous photographer, you can see the stunning pics of this amazing sky display.
If you think we look good from the ground, you should see us from space. I've found more than a dozen pics taken by astronauts that are a gentle reminder of how pretty Missouri and Illinois really are - from above.
There are several times per year during known meteor showers when it's not unusual to see something like this. However, this huge meteor was completely unexpected as it exploded over Missouri as captured on video by a photographer.
