Total Eclipse of the Sun as seen in Oregon.



Oregon will be the first state to see the total eclipse of the Sun! The umbra will hit the shores of Oregon at 10:15:53 am PDT near a small town called Otter Rock. The center of totality will cross the beach some 8 miles north of Otter Rock near a town called Depoe Bay a few seconds later. The center line, intersecting the ocean shore, will have a duration of darkness of 1 minute and 59 seconds (with less as you travel away from the center line).

Some eleven minutes later, the umbra will exit eastern Oregon at 10:27:05 am PDT. Duration of totality, at the state line, will be 2 minutes and 10 seconds near Lime Oregon. The only major city in the path of totality is Salem. Portland and Eugene will only be able to see a partial eclipse.

I might add that the lower 48 is the only land mass to see the total eclipse. Totality will begin out over the Pacific Ocean, and totality will end out over the Atlantic. No islands will see totality along the path. Hawaii will be able to see only a partial eclpse.

Total Solar Eclipse from Space on August 21, 2017


As you can see, the Earth is rotating while the Moon is orbiting around us. You can see the umbra on the ground following the red path. (The music is from the motion picture soundtrack How the West Was Won by Alfred Newman.)
