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.
It’s going to be an exciting weekend in Baker County leading up to the eclipse and we’ll be adding regular updates here so be sure to check back often as you plan your 2017 eclipse adventure.
