Eclipse Path

Eclipse path

The path of totality for the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. The moon’s shadow raced from Oregon to South Carolina at supersonic speed. We chose to view the eclipse from Grand Teton National Park outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. (We stayed at Jackson Lake Lodge, a relic in need of a major renovation).

The mountain weather was a potential spoiler; in fact, the forecast was for AM clouds and afternoon sun. Considering totality was scheduled to arrive at our destination (Lat 43.877, Long -110.576) 11:30 AM local time, we might have travelled a long way for nothing! Fortunately, although there were clouds at 5 AM, by 7:30 AM the sky was totally clear — bring on totality!!
