Where is the Best Place to Watch the 2017 Solar Eclipse in Glacier National Park?
What is a Solar Eclipse?
When Will We Be Able to See the Solar Eclipse in Glacier National Park?
Here in Northwest Montana and in Glacier National Park, we will experience a 90% blockage of the sun by the moon. This blockage will begin at 10:16am, reach its apex at 11:31am, and end at 12:51pm. After the 2017 solar eclipse, the next total solar eclipse visible over the continental United States will not occur until April 8, 2024. The last one occurred in 1979!
So, this sort of thing doesn’t happen every day. Don’t miss out – join us for a special Solar Eclipse River Party! We are launching a Solar Eclipse Scenic Float — suitable for ages 3 and up — on the Wild & Scenic Middle Fork of the Flathead River, which forms Glacier National Park’s southwestern border. Where could be a better place to watch the 2017 Solar Eclipse in Glacier National Park than the park’s border river?
While we are watching the eclipse, our Sky Specialist will discuss all things moon, sun, and stars. In addition, the Glacier National Park Conservancy will be on hand to discuss Glacier National Park’s recent International Dark Sky Designation. Space is limited, so sign up today!
