We are completely booked for the 2017 eclipse. Thank you for your interest.

     

A total solar eclipse will take place on Monday, August 21, 2017. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across the surface of the Earth, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a region thousands of kilometers wide.

This will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental USA in 38 years. The last one occurred February 26, 1979. Unfortunately, not many people saw it because it clipped just five states in the Northwest and the weather for the most part was bleak. Before that one, you have to go back to March 7, 1970.

A solar eclipse is a lineup of the Sun, the Moon, and Earth. The Moon, directly between the Sun and Earth, casts a shadow on our planet. If you are in the dark part of that shadow (the umbra), you'll see a total eclipse. If you are in the light part (the penumbra), you will see a partial eclipse.

A solar eclipse happens at New Moon. The Moon has to be between the Sun and Earth for a solar eclipse to occur.
