The 2017 total solar eclipse happening on August 21st is a big deal!
An eclipse is a phenomenon that happens when the moon passes between the sun and the earth blocking out view of the sun. This year’s eclipse should last about 2 minutes (depending on where you’re viewing it from).
The last visible eclipse from the continental United States was in 1979 and the last one that stretched from coast to coast in the United States was in 1918. Central Oregon is on the “path of totality”, meaning Oregonians are able see this year’s eclipse completely from our geographic location. This rare event is bringing many eclipse enthusiasts to Central Oregon.
One notable group coming to Terrebonne is National Geographic! They’ve arranged a special giveaway along with Airbnb for a one-night adventure that includes viewing the eclipse from a jet and experiencing the total solar eclipse with National Geographic explorer and astrophysicist Dr. Jedidah Isler. She’ll be in Terrebonne with a team that also includes a National Geographic photographer. The winners will spend a night in a geodesic dome in the beautiful high desert wilderness.
If you haven’t already secured a spot to view the eclipse, you should enter to win this amazing once in a lifetime event called “Night at Solar Eclipse”.
