A solar eclipse is a rare cosmic event where the moon completely blocks out the light of the sun and casts a shadow for approximately three minutes.
The last solar eclipse crossed Oregon in 1979, and another won’t return until October 5, 2108, when a sliver of the Oregon coast will experience the tail end of the event.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime event for our area, and will be a spectacular show.
Where to see it:
The central path of the total eclipse runs 5.5 miles north of downtown Madras, just one hour from Sunriver.
Most hotels in Central Oregon are already booked solid, but we still have availability for our guests interested in experiencing this amazing event.
