Don’t Miss the Eclipse

Have you ever seen a total solar eclipse from the top of The Moon? Neither have we.

The last time St. Louis experienced a total solar eclipse was the year 1442. That’s a whole 567 years before The Moonrise even opened. The next eclipse will be in 2505 – that’s another 488 years. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime event.

So don’t miss this one! You’ll have the opportunity to see a solar eclipse from St. Louis on Monday, August 21, 2017. Join solar enthusiasts from all over the U.S. as they gather to see this celestial event.

And what better vantage point than on top of The Moon? The Delmar Loop is right in the viewing path and our Rooftop Terrace will have stellar views. The entire Delmar Loop will be celebrating with the Loop Eclipse Festival on Sunday, August 20 where you can experience the planet walk and enjoy space-themed activities.

Make plans to stay overnight at The Moonrise Hotel, then take the elevator home after the Loop block party on Sunday, August 20.
