For the first time since 1979, a total solar eclipse is coming to Wyoming! On August 21, 2017, the eclipse will make its way across the beautiful Wyoming skies. Astronomers and eclipse enthusiasts from around the world are making their plans to convene in Wyoming to experience one of the most breathtaking sights on earth in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
The eclipse’s path of totality will make its way through the entire central region of the state, providing visitors the opportunity to see it in some of the Nation’s most stunning landscapes. Areas and communities located directly under this path will experience the eclipse for approximately two-and-a-half minutes. The eclipse will be viewable for a lesser duration of time in communities located roughly 30 – 50 miles from the center of totality, but still in the eclipse’s path.
Come for the eclipse, stay for once-in-a-lifetime experiences! Communities throughout Wyoming are hosting week-long celebrations including concerts, pow-wows, festivals and other stargazing events surrounding the eclipse. Take this opportunity to see the state’s other natural wonders; Wyoming is home to 36 National Park units and 12 State Parks, providing endless opportunities to make your Solar Eclipse experience an extended escape.
That’s WY you should make the Total Solar Eclipse your excuse for a truly memorable Wyoming vacation!
