On Aug. 21, 2017, sky watchers around the United States will be able to see a rare celestial extravaganza — It will be the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States in nearly four decades.
Being dubbed as "The Great American Total Solar Eclipse", its presence will darken the sky from the coast of Oregon, all the way to the Eastern seaboard of South Carolina. It will cover a stretch of land about 70 miles (113 kilometers) wide as it crosses the United States. People who are within the "Path of Totality" will be in for an experience of a life time.
The last total solar eclipse that the United States was graced with, was on Feb. 26, 1979. But this is the first time one will be available to view across the entirety of the U.S.
Swan Valley, ID and surrounding area will have an almost perfect view of the Eclipse. The Covered Wagon Saloon and R.V. Park has spaces available for rent, with a perfect view of the sky. We would love to have join us for this spectacular show!
