Fantastic Story of St. Louis Couple Who Have Seen 11 #SolarEclipse Events on Multiple Continents

I’ll be traveling to and experiencing the 2017 Solar Eclipse from the greater St. Louis region (where I’m from), so I really appreciate this story:

Most people are lucky if they see one total solar eclipse in their lifetime.

Sharon and Billy Hahs don’t leave it up to chance.

Since 1991, the Kirkwood couple have chased 14 solar eclipses, all in different countries, and have managed to catch 11 of them. This year, they won’t have to travel far.

Their family-owned farmhouse in Sedgewickville, Mo., is within the path of totality for the event Aug. 21. They, along with their friends and family, will gather to watch the astronomical phenomenon from the backyard of the white, two-story clapboard house, which has been in the Hahs family for six generations.

It’s almost like it was meant to be.
