Located in the upper swath of the eclipse path, Shaniko will be in full eclipse for 1 minute, 27 seconds, with approximately 2 minutes on each side while the moon is moving. Shaniko is on the high desert of Oregon and we will be able to see the mountains go into the shadows. Best yet, Shaniko has very little cloud cover, so we have a great chance to have clear skies for the event.
Viewing glasses will be included in your event fee and we are working with the town to set up other events such as a tour with the town historian, and the Sarsaparilla bar will be open. There is quite a bit to see in Shaniko, and a lot of history.
There are only 35 spots. If we sell out I am in talks with members of the community, and we can potentially find more spots, or add another area, but we need to know how many NOW so we can negotiate. Sign up using the contact form to the right. You will be invoiced in the order you sign up. The first 35 paid will be in, and I will stop the invoice process. We will go to wait list, and the Shadows team will work on expanding.
The cost is $80.00 per trailer (no matter when you come or when you go), viewing glasses included. We will set up a misting tent for cooling off, visiting, telling lies, and one community propane fire pit.
Dinner Friday night TBD
