If you haven't heard, a complete solar eclipse will occur this coming August. This will be the first time since 1918 that a complete eclipse will occur in America and the central location for this event will be Madras, Oregon. During the eclipse, Madras will be in complete darkness for 2 minutes at approximately 10:19 am. The eclipse should enter Oregon and exit through South Carolina, but most of the continental United States should experience at least a partial viewing. To experience the total darkness, however, viewers need to be within the 67 mile band of the shadow.
Hotels are already fully booked in the small Central Oregon town of Madras and many events connected with the eclipse are already scheduled. Madras, due to its location for the band of shadow, clear skies, and high desert location, has been identified as among the best places in America to view this once in a lifetime occurrence. It should be quite a show!
