2017 SOLAR ECLIPSE

Adam J. Brown, City Manager
Ontario, Oregon

On August 21, 2017 a total eclipse of the sun will be visible within a narrow corridor that traverses the United States. The path of the moon's umbral shadow begins in the northern Pacific and crosses the United States from west to east through parts of the following states: Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina.

Ontario, Oregon, will be in the path of the total eclipse making our city an ideal viewing location. We are expecting a large influx of visitors coming into Ontario or passing through starting Saturday, August 19th and lasting through the Monday, August 21st solar eclipse.
