Total Solar Eclipse 2017 ~ Where to Be in Oregon

Total Solar Eclipse to sweep across 14 states in 2017.  Are you an Eclipse-Chaser and do you have your accommodations reserved?

A Total Solar Eclipse will occur in America for the first time in 26 years and it will sweep across Oregon, first touching land at a rocky spot of ground just north of Newport at about 10:15 in the morning on August 21, 2017. This lucky little piece of earth will experience a full minute and fifty seconds of totality.

Although McKenzie River Round House and Eagle Rock Lodge are about an hour from the path of the solar eclipse they still have rooms available on August 20, the night before the eclipse.  Wake up near ground zero.

This total solar eclipse is the first on American soil since 1991, the first to sweep across the entire country since 1918, and the first on the mainland since 1979.  It will be spectacular and people from all over the world will converge on the United States. Eclipse-chasers are already making a plans to position themselves in a spot carefully chosen to ensure they see the the most beautiful celestial event on the planet.   There is little lodging to be had in the path of the solar eclipse.  Folks have been booking for well over a year, making the trip to Oregon to observe one of the most spectacular things they might ever see in their lives.
