USA 2017 Eclipse Viewing Location
Our 2017 North American Total Solar Eclipse Tour takes you to Wyoming, viewing the eclipse from the magnificent Grand Teton National Park.
THE ECLIPSE: 21 AUGUST 2017
The path of totality for this total solar eclipse – now being referred to as the Great American Eclipse - starts in the North Pacific Ocean, and then makes landfall across the central part of North America, crossing the states of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The path then continues out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Millions of people will experience this dramatic total eclipse for a maximum of 2 minutes and 45 seconds, along a narrow path that is 115 km wide. This is the first time a total eclipse will be seen across the US all the way from the Pacific to the Atlantic, and is on track to be one of the most observed in a century.
THE ECLIPSE PATH OVER WYOMING
The most dramatic scenery for this 2017 eclipse can be found in Wyoming, with Yellowstone National Park just north of totality and Grand Teton National Park set directly in the eclipse path, it will be a spectacular destination for a TSE viewing.
ECLIPSE VIEWING LOCATION: Grand Teton National Park
Viewing from an area surrounded by mountains will offer another dimension to your eclipse experience with the chance to see the Moon's shadow moving over an iconic landscape. Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton range stands only 10 miles / 16 km south of Yellowstone National Park. These are mountains which offer approximately 310,000 acres and major peaks of the 40-mile-long (64 km) Teton Range as well as most of the northern sections of the valley known as Jackson Hole. The Grand Teton National Park offers an incredible back drop to an extraordinary natural event.
Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club
Sitting in the shadows of the jagged Grand Teton Mountain Range, Jackson Hole spans a total 4,214 square miles of water and glacier carved earth. The beauty of the Teton skyline jutting out of the flat expanse of the Snake River Valley is one of the most familiar images in the American West. The Tetons have become the quintessential representation of what all mountains should look like, mountains of the imagination. Sitting at the base of these storied peaks is the Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club - Our Eclipse Viewing Site.
This site will provide a maximum duration of 2 minutes 19 seconds of totality. First contact occurs at 10.16am, with second contact (totality) at 11.35am. The eclipse ends with 4th contact around 1pm.
