August 21, 2017 Total Eclipse Oregon


Not long to go now until the total solar eclipse on April 8th, 2024! It will be visible across North America and has been dubbed the Great North American Eclipse by some of the media.

According to NASA, cities in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and small parts of Tennessee and Michigan will experience the total solar eclipse. Parts of Mexico and Canada will also fall within the eclipse’s path.

The solar eclipse is set to last nearly four minutes in Niagara Falls, making the viewing period significantly longer than the mere seconds predicted for other cities and towns.

A range of eclipse-related activities, including planetarium shows, a cosmic paint night and programming led by NASA astronauts, will be offered at “various points of interest throughout the city” from Thursday, April 4 to Monday, April 8, according to Niagara Falls USA.


I saw this: AirBnB bookings for April 7.


That’s a great graphic!

Here in Dallas, we are hearing about maybe 400,000 visitors this weekend and hotels are 99% booked. Dallas is the largest US city in the path of totality, and historically the one with the best chance of good weather. Unfortunately, forecast is now for clouds :frowning:

We’ll be in NYC on Monday so hopefully we’ll be able to see it around the skyscrapers.


I was in the path of totality of the August 11 eclipse in 1999, somewhere between Rouen and Amiens. Cloudy, but some patches of blue sky. We took the car in that direction, and we were lucky to see it. It was amazing to see how the shadow approaches over the hills, as if there was a gigantic hand coming over us.

One can look at reflections in windows.

Partial though. Hours from path of totality.

I should’ve gotten the glasses! Fortunately, I saw this on the campus of my complex with my neighbors who were sharing glasses, so I got to look. I came back up a little early to beat the elevator rush and also because of actual work, and saw the clowder all on the bed in the still darkened bedrooms with a look like “Who us? We ain’t scared of nothin!”

Amazingly, the clouds cleared just as we reached totality. For 4 minutes it got dark again, the temperature dropped considerably, and the corona was safe to view with the naked eye. It was amazing!


Watching the eclipse near Dayton OH with my Trusted Housesitters friends! I’m not on a sit for them, I just came up to see the eclipse with them. :heart::heart:
