On Aug. 21, 2017, people across the United States will see the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature drop rapidly and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse.
The so-called Great American Total Solar Eclipse will darken skies all the way from Oregon to South Carolina, along a stretch of land about 70 miles (113 kilometers) wide. People who descend upon this "path of totality" for the big event are in for an unforgettable experience.
The Society managed to reserve two (2) camp ground spots [Site 74, Loop B and Site 76, Loop B] at the Historic Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in Oregon, offering fishing, water skiing and boating. This park and campground are within the path of totality. Each site can accommodate up to eight (8) people, for a total of 16. The Society is looking for six (6) more interested people to join us on this incredible road trip!
