Government Point - Depoe Bay
Government Point – Depoe Bay

The total solar eclipse, happening on Monday, August 21st 2017, has been a topic of interest for many years. It’s presumed to be the most viewed eclipse ever, in part due to blogs like this. It’s also happening during the summer, with optimal viewing areas from many large cities across the United States. The best part about this upcoming eclipse? It’s going to be starting right here in Oregon, just two minutes north of Depoe Bay at the Boiler Bay Scenic Viewpoint Area, also known as Government Point.

At precisely 10:15:56.5 AM PDT, you’ll want to be in this exact location to watch the solar eclipse begin. Bring some snacks and cold drinks while you wait, along with sunscreen. Seeing as it will be August, summer will be in full swing and you’ll be thankful for the refreshments. Look around you before the solar eclipse is set to happen. In the sky surrounding you, you’ll be able to witness a sunset in every direction, because that is essentially what’s happening with the solar eclipse. If you are prone to light sensitivity, see about picking up some Mylar eclipse glasses or a #14 welder’s glass to witness this amazing event with comfort. Also, and maybe this goes without saying, but hit the restroom before the big event so you’re sure to catch the entire thing!
