On August 21st, 2017 at approximately 10:19 a.m., the moon will pass in front of the sun casting the small Central Oregon town of Madras into complete darkness for over two minutes.  
Labeled "The Great American Eclipse" and "The National Eclipse, the worlds greatest natural phenomenon will be the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in America since 1918.  Entering Oregon and exiting in South Carolina, most of the Continental United States will be able to partially see the 2017 eclipse.   However, to fully experience total darkness  you must be within a 67 mile band of the shadow.  

The difference between seeing the eclipse from within this band and outside of it is truly "Night & Day"

Bring your tents, trailers, vans to set-up together in our own fancy fun camp and glamp with us in style!  We will have a couple shade structures up, one for group dining, and one for the Boomerang bar for us all to share together!  

We will have our own swanky fun glamorous camp at: Solartown Campground

Solartown will feature a diverse variety of food and beverage as well as the absolute best view of the Eclipse and its shadow as it races down the face of the volcanic peaks.  Solartown offers a quiet place to wait for the eclipse and will serve as a shuttle stop for those wanting to experience the festival or events around Madras.

Oregon will be one of the most popular states to view the eclipse. While the rest of the United States offers a longer duration of totality, sections of the eclipse path in Oregon offers the best weather prospects anywhere along the entire eclipse path.

Two major viewing parties are being organized in Oregon. The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) has announced a viewing event at the state fairgrounds in Salem, see for details. Another event, the Oregon SOLARFEST is being held in Madras, Oregon. See for information.
