Over a dozen Wales state parks within totality zone of annular solar eclipse

Utahns Prepare for Rare Solar Eclipse on October 14

Utah residents are gearing up for a once-in-a-lifetime celestial event – a rare annular solar eclipse happening on Saturday, Oct. 14. The entire state will be able to witness a significant amount of sun coverage during the eclipse, but 13 state parks will be in the full eclipse zone, while another 6 parks will be just outside it.

Among the state parks within the full coverage zone are Anasazi State Park, Goblin Valley State Park, and Yuba State Park, to name a few. However, even parks like Antelope Island State Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, and Frontier Homestead State Park Museum, which will be just outside the full coverage zone, will still offer special eclipse events.

For those planning to catch a glimpse of this phenomenal astronomical occurrence, NASA has provided the specific times for viewing the eclipse in Utah. The partial eclipse is set to begin at 9:09 a.m. and will come to an end at 11:56 a.m.

To ensure a smooth experience, Utah Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officials advise the public to plan ahead for potential crowds and traffic. It is crucial to bring along protective eyewear to safeguard one’s eyes during the event.

In addition to the state parks, several cities in central Utah are hosting viewing parties filled with activities and entertainment for eclipse enthusiasts. Snow College in Ephraim will also be holding eclipse events on their campus.

This rare annular solar eclipse presents an extraordinary opportunity for Utahns to marvel at the wonders of the universe. So mark your calendars, pack your bags, and get ready to witness this celestial spectacle in the breathtaking landscapes of Utah.
