Eclipse 2017 Baker County News and Updates

A nearly once-in-a-lifetime event is happening in August 2017, and Baker County Oregon is getting a front row seat.
The August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse, will be the first to cross the united states in nearly a century The eclipse begins at approximately 9:15 a.m.,depending on exact location in Baker County,  and will reach totality (when the sun is completely covered by the moon) at about 10:20 a.m. The total eclipse will last about two minutes, and the sun will be fully visible again by 11:45 a.m. The path of totality is only 70 miles wide, and we’re fortunate that nearly all of Baker County is within the path of totality.
