ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – An 81-year-old Chicago-area man is planning an adventure to the St. Louis area to see the upcoming solar phenomenon.
Ed O’Hare, of Arlington Heights, Illinois, says he and his wife will meet friends from Minneapolis here for the total solar eclipse happening in just under three weeks.
He plotted the path of the eclipse using NASA’s website and Google maps.
“I taught math and physics in my three years of teaching, and I do have some kind of an affinity for maps,” he says.
O’Hare says he and his wife have traveled the world, including Russia, China and Vietnam, and says coming here for the total solar eclipse will be another adventure.
