Makanda Hotspot for Eclipse Viewing

Makanda Hotspot for Eclipse Viewing, Metamora Herald

 Central Illinois is not quite in the direct path of the upcoming eclipse's shadow later this month, but one small town in Southern Illinois is planning on having many guests that day. Makanda, Illinois is right in the middle of the some 70-mile wide swath that will be the shadow cast during the eclipse. The town is also set to be in the path of another eclipse in 2024.
 Might be worth the four and a half hour trip down to check it out, or not. Just some fun facts from Illinois!
