Solar Eclipse Watch Party

Monday, August 21, 2017

The rare solar eclipse will appear at about 98 percent of totality in Eugene. Let us shuttle you to the top of Skinner Butte for the view.

Shuttle buses will be leaving from Campbell Community Center (155 High Street) every 10 minutes starting at 8:30 a.m to bring you to the top of the butte. You can also walk or bike up to the butte, no cars will be allowed. The maximum eclipse will be at approximately 10:17 a.m.

A limited number of eclipse glasses will be available. Interpretive signs, activities and a coffee vendor will be on site.

This will be the only total solar eclipse viewable from Oregon this century - don't miss out!
