The daytime becomes a deep twilight, and the suns corona shimmers in the darkened sky. The best place to view at the Oregon coast will be between Newport and Lincoln City, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 21, 2017. The eclipse will last for a total of about two minutes starting at 10:15 am. 

Depoe Bay, Oregon

The photo above is Depoe Bay, about halfway between Newport and Lincoln City. Depoe Bay will experience a full total eclipse! Many of our hotels and vacation rentals are already booked, however, I understand that 1000 new campsites will be added on April 19, at various parks throughout Oregon. For more information on eclipse camping, call the OPRD information line at 1-800-551-6949. 

 

From what I have been reading, there will be a 60-mile wide path of totality - that is when the moon completely blocks the sun. The path of totality sweeps through Oregon and on to Idaho, then runs across the United States toward South Carolina. You will view a parital eclipse if outsde the path of totality.

Shahar, 

I see you are from Northridge, the eclipse is closer to you than you may think! I suggest a Burbank airport 1.5 hr flight to Portland PDX, rent a car, we are about 2.5 hours from PDX, a beautiful drive through countryside complete with farm stands and wineries. 

Thanks for your comment!

Good morning Barbara. I really like your picture. I love watching the moon but never manage to get a good picture of it.

I hope the emergency rooms don't fill up with people injuring their eyesight.  It's so tempting.
