August Lunar Eclipse

August Lunar Eclipse

The last time a total solar eclipse was seen in the United States was in 1979, before Axia Home Loan’s time, however we will be present for this solar eclipse happening on August 21, 2017. Although 48 states will be able to see at least a partial eclipse, there is a 70-mile totality path where the total solar eclipse is fully visible and these are the states with the best locations to view it. So get out there bright an early to catch a glimpse at this very rare occasion!

 

 

1. Silver Falls State Park, OR
This water fall is located about 40 minutes east of Salem, and a great place to take a hike and watch the eclipse!
When to see eclipse: 10:05am to 12:38pm; total eclipse 11:18am
