Eclipsed in Wyoming

On 21 August 2017, a total solar eclipse will pass over the United States, cutting a 110-kilometre-long swathe of darkness from Oregon to South Carolina.

The first eclipse since 1979 that will be viewable from within the US, Wyoming will be front and centre for the phenomenon with Jackson Hole and the southern part of Grand Teton National Park one of the best places to observe this celestial rarity.

Solar spectators who head up Jackson Hole’s famous red tram to the top of Rendezvous mountain will see two minutes and twenty seconds of total eclipse at about 11.35am local time, as well as eye popping views over the Tetons and the valley below. Casper, Wyoming is another great spot to take in the eclipse.
