Teton Valley Solar Eclipse 2017

On August 21st 2017, Teton Valley, Idaho will be in the “line of totality” for the Solar Eclipse.  This rare event occurred last on June 18, 1918 and took much of the same path as it will be taking on August 21st.  Teton Valley is regarded as one of the best places to view this rare event because of the 6,000+ elevation, gorgeous mountain landscape and typically clear skies.

 

Solar Eclipse Events

The website for TETON TOTALITY  provides a complete list of events, lodging options, and general information for the Solar Eclipse. Grand Targhee Resort is hosting camping and a scenic chair lift ride on the day of the eclipse.  Plan ahead as the resort will only sell a limited number of camping, chair lift and parking passes.  You can view the summit webcam for a live solar eclipse video stream.  The Dreamcatcher Bed and Breakfast is also hosting a brunch during this amazing event.  Tickets are limited to 50 guests.

Don’t forget your Eclipse Glasses

The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses”.  The Solar Eclipse will occur at 11:36 am MST for 2 min. 18 seconds, so have your eclipse glasses and a chair ready
