Planning a visit to Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Parks to see the solar eclipse? Here are a few things to keep in mind.
According to NASA, the eclipse will pass over the United States Monday, August 21. It is slated to appear over the continental U.S. around 10 a.m. It will “peak” (enter total eclipse) over Grand Teton and Jackson at approximately 11:36 a.m. MST. A map of the eclipse’s path over Wyoming is below, courtesy of NASA.
Eclipse conditions will continue from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
According to a Yellowstone press release, officials are expecting a big turnout, even though Yellowstone isn’t in the path of total eclipse. Visitors will be able to see a partial eclipse from the park, while visitors in Grand Teton and Jackson will see a total eclipse.
