What is a Solar Eclipse?

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth. A solar eclipse can only take place at the phase of new moon, when the moon passes directly between the sun and Earth and its shadows fall upon Earth’s surface.

Professor Brian Cox, Dara O’Briain and Liz Bonnin bring us coverage of the solar eclipse. Liz Bonnin was beaming back the live pictures from a plane above the Faroe Islands.

Why Deluxe Eclipse Tour on the Oregon Coast on August 21, 2017 is the BEST!

The Deluxe Eclipse Tour is:

  • The only group tour that has a hotel for several days where the eclipse will be experienced on the spectacular Oregon coast!
  • We feature the finest hotels and dining fare at all locations
  • Marriott
  • Portland Marriott Waterfront Hotel (photo above)
  • We will view the eclipse at the gorgeous and pristine Oregon coast near the Siletz Bay in Lincoln City, which is the point of first contact for the eclipse on the coast of the North American continent.    In what is being called the Great American Eclipse, it is estimated that  over 500 million people within a 65-mile-wide track from Oregon to South Carolina will witness one of Nature’s grandest spectacles.  We are pleased to let you know that we have a certain number of available hotel rooms reserved for our guests on this tour.  See detailed coordinates on Itinerary.  Terms and Agreement located below – open PDF and follow instructions.  Please check back for updates on this website.

  • We will tour the premier Mountains of the Cascade volcanic range: Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Hood with guided lectures and hike

  • We visit places and sites that only the local tour directors know about, giving you a deluxe Pacific Northwest experience like no other!
  • The group tour spans the entire Oregon coastline, particularly the most impressive and beautiful part, the southern Oregon coastline where we will stop and do a little whale watching!  Some gray whales do not continue on to Alaskan waters but stay off the coast of Oregon between June and November. These part-time residents number about 200. About 60 whales are seen repeatedly off the central coast and have been photographed and identified. Of these, about 40 hang out between Lincoln City and Newport each year because that seems to be what the food supply will support.
