The celestial event that sets Eclipse Fest 23 apart is the much-anticipated annular solar eclipse. On October 14, 2023, a remarkable astronomical occurrence will unfold, providing a breathtaking display of nature's grandeur.

This awe-inspiring ring of fire phenomenon will be visible in select locations across the United States, including parts of the West Coast. As noted in the video above, you'll want to find an open area where you can see the eclipse as the sun will be low in the sky when it reaches Oregon. Eclipse viewers in Oregon will want to view the eclipse from an open field where their line of sight to the sun is not obstructed by trees and buildings.
