Great American Eclipse
Bob Yoesle from the Friends of the Goldendale Observatory will be on hand Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 12:30 – 1:30 to offer advice and a presentation on what this solar phenomena will be like. The presentation will be inside the Murdock Theater and will be included with museum admission.
Do you know how to prepare for this once-in-a-lifetime event? The total solar eclipse of Monday, August 21, 2017 – also known as “The Great American Eclipse” – will be the first total eclipse to touch on American soil since 1991; the first on the mainland since 1979; and the first to sweep across the entire country since 1918.
However, the August 21, 2017 eclipse will not be a total solar eclipse anywhere in the state of Washington or even in The Dalles. You’ll need to travel to Central Oregon to view the eclipse as it passes in a wide arc through the middle of Oregon. Learn what you can do to prepare to make this lifetime event the memory of a lifetime.
