2017 Solar Eclipse

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, ultimately blocking the view of the Sun for a short period of time.
The latest solar eclipse will be taking place on August 21, 2017. Ontario, OR will be in the path of the eclipse so our city is an ideal viewing location! This event has quickly booked hotels in numerous states and is bringing in travelers from across the world to the United States. Not only is the solar eclipse a highly sought-after phenomenon, but it also poses as a great opportunity to tour Ontario, OR and its surrounding areas!
Updates on the weather forecast for August 2017 will be added in the future as the date of the solar eclipse approaches. Events for the solar eclipse will be listed in our 2017 solar eclipse events calendar below.

*Partial phase start: 10:10:07AM (MDT)
