2017 Oregon Total Solar Eclipse Facts
- The first total solar eclipse touching the continental United States since 1979
- The eclipse touches down on the Oregon coast between Lincoln City and Newport.
- The eclipse reaches Oregon at about 10:15 a.m. PDT and exits the state at 10:27 a.m.
- Before Oregon, the shadow of the Moon (umbra) does not touch any other landmass or island.
- At the coast, the greatest duration of totality is 2 minutes and as the eclipse exits Oregon, the duration of totality has increased to 2 minutes and 10 seconds.
- When the eclipse first touches Oregon, the Moon’s shadow is racing at approximately 3,400 miles per hour! When the Moon’s shadow leaves Oregon, it has slowed down to about 2,900 miles per hour because it is now higher in the sky.
- The width of the eclipse path in the Willamette Valley is about 87 miles.
