SOLAR ECLIPSE FESTIVAL
Coria Estates is excited to host a Solar Eclipse Festival all day August 21st, 2017. Grounds will open at 7am, and doors to the winery will open at 9am. There will be food, live music and more throughout the day in celebration of this incredible phenomena! Bring your telescope, camera, and lawn chair!
FINE PRINT: Only those with tickets will be allowed entry the day of the festival. Children 3 years of age and younger do not require a ticket. All ticket confirmations sent to your email must be printed and provided upon check-in. Photo identification is required. We will have shuttles and parking staff working throughout the day, but carpooling is highly recommended. Please allow yourself ample time for arrival as traffic is expected to be congested in the Salem area. Due to high volume on this day, we cannot honor any Groupons during the festival.
Purchase Festival Tickets Below. All ages welcome. Salud!
And that land will be United States soil. On the beach in Oregon, at a rocky spot of ground just north of Newport that sticks its nose out into the Pacific, the shadow first touches land at 17:15:50.6UT (at about 10:15 in the morning). This lucky piece of Earth experiences a full minute and fifty seconds of totality.
The actual centerline of the eclipse path hits solid ground a full six seconds later, and plunges Lincoln Beach and Depoe Bay into darkness for 1m58s!
It takes only about two minutes for the shadow to race eastward toward its first date with a large population of folks who will be breathlessly awaiting its arrival. Dallas, Albany, Corvallis, Lebanon, Philomath, McMinnville, Woodburn, and yes, Salem itself, experience various durations of totality (based on their varying distances from the centerline); on the steps of the State Capitol in Salem (the first of five state capitals the shadow will visit), lucky viewers will be treated to 1m54.5s of shadow at just after 10:17am. (Great time for a coffee break!)
The great city of Portland is NOT in the path of totality! If you're there, or in Eugene, you will not get the full meal deal! Get south, and get yourself into the shadow! That's right: IF YOU STAY IN PORTLAND, the eclipse will never be total for you! You will need to use your eclipse glasses for the entire partial eclipse, and you will not see the beauty of totality!
The eclipse then leaves our most western friends, and travels through the forests and deserts of central Oregon, hitting the mountains atMadras and Warm Springs at about 10:19. Mitchell and Prairie City are next, and the shadow leaves Oregon just north of Ontario. (Actually, Ontario gets 1m23s of totality at 11:25am MDT, but folks there would be better served to head north to the rest area north of Huntington on I-84, or into Idaho on US95 between Midvale and Weiser, for better than 30 seconds more totality! Soak them up; those seconds in the shadow are precious!!!)
