Iowans haven’t been able to see this visibly in over 60 years.

Crowds of people flood towns in states where solar eclipses can be seen. Little known fact, there are the astral groupies and eclipse chasers who get a thrill from being able to witness such an amazing event. Many cry, some fall to ground and others stand in awe.

The state of Iowa doesn’t seem to be the place where this happens, but according to a new projection, a southwestern corner of Iowa will be 1 of 14 states this summer, where the solar eclipse happens. This hasn’t happened in 63 years, according to DesMoinesRegister.com.

“It happens an average of every 18 months somewhere on Earth. But to be in the 70-mile path of totality in the Midwest is rare. The last one in the continental U.S. was in 1979 in the northwest corner. The next one in Des Moines will be June 16, 2178. “
