Please join Glen Canyon's Night Ranger team as we experience the magic of a solar eclipse! Through the lens of our specially equipped telescopes, we'll examine the Sun's brilliant face as it nearly disappears behind our passing Moon.
To observe the Sun safely, you need to filter out more than 99% of the Sun’s light before it reaches your eyes. It is very important that you not attempt to view the Sun without proper equipment. Paper eclipse glasses will be available on a first-come first-served basis, but we'll also have solar telescopes and pin-hole viewers on site.
The total phase of this eclipse is not visible in Glen Canyon, but will be observed as a partial solar eclipse. Maximum eclipse will be visible at 10:34AM, Arizona time, 11:34AM, Utah time. The eclipse will be visible in all National Park Service areas, but in totality in 21 park units. Tap Here for more eclipse information.
