Grand Teton To Host Eclipse Viewing Event
MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) — The Teton Range will provide one of the more dramatic backdrops for a solar eclipse that will be visible across much of the West this weekend.
Grand Teton National Park will host a solar eclipse viewing event starting at 6 p.m. Sunday. Astronomer and park ranger naturalist Bob Hoyle will host the gathering in partnership with the Jackson Hole Astronomy Club.
A full solar eclipse will occur across a wide swath of the Southwest.
In Jackson Hole, the moon will cover up as much as 80 percent of the sun. That will happen at around 7:30 p.m., when the sun is low in the western sky and not too far above the craggy Tetons.
The viewing event will take place at the Willow Flats Overlook north of Jackson Lake Junction.
