    Introduction:

    I'm so excited to view the Great American Solar Eclipse in 2017. The last time I experienced a near total eclipse was in 1979.

    The Great American Eclipse 2017

    What: 

    This time we get a glorious total solar eclipse for about 2 and a half minutes (if we are in the right place). The eclipse near Madras will occur approximately at 10:21 am on Monday, August 21st 2017.

    We will be camping Saturday night, Sunday night and viewing the eclipse on Monday near Madras Oregon before heading back home. Camping may or may not be near Madras. More details to follow.

    I have a telescope with a safe solar filter for everyone to share and view this wonderful natural spectacle.

    When: Saturday, 8/19 through Monday, 8/21. The eclipse is on Monday

    Where:

    Camping in or near Madras Oregon. More details to follow

    Why:

    Because we can and it will be the last total solar eclipse in quite some time in the Continental United States. The next one for us will be in 2023 in the Southern US.
