Eclipse at Shasta Star Ranch B & B

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Solar Eclipse Aug 21, 2017
Mt Shasta is going to have an almost 90% solar eclipse. Although the Oregon coast will be 100% sun blockage the total eclipse lasts only 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
Mt Shasta has 229 sunny days which means you may have a better chance of seeing the eclipse from Mt. Shasta than the coast which has only 156 sunny days.
The partial phase before and after the total eclipse is 2 to 3 hours. The event is only happening in North America where about 12 million lucky folks will be able to see it.
Do not look at it with sunglasses or unfiltered binoculars or telescopes. Direct viewing could cause permanent damage to your eyes. Solar eclipse glasses are available on line. Whether you chose to see it from our perfect view on the veranda of Shasta Starr Ranch B & B or the Oregon coast it should be quite a spectacle.
