Thousands enjoy eclipse along Ozark Riverways 

VAN BUREN, Mo. — After months of preparation, visitors to Ozark National Scenic Riverways (ONSR) enjoyed a spectacular total eclipse.

The park’s “Zark Side of the Moon” event saw over 4,500 visitors at Big Spring, where they got a perfect view of the total eclipse.

Alley Spring had the next largest gathering, with around 1,100 visitors. 

Clear skies and warm weather made for a lovely day: those present got to see the sun’s corona, which is only visible during totality.

The eclipse peaked just before 2 p.m., showing off four glorious minutes of totality at Big Spring. While the length of totality increased further south, visitors enjoyed the day no matter where they were in the park.
