Idaho Eclipse

Crossing the Snake River Plain, the path of totality will be welcomed in the second state for that day: Idaho. The moon’s shadow will enter  Idaho at 11:25 AM, MDT, continuing the path that began in Oregon.

On  Monday, August 21, 2017, Idaho will be one of the most desirable places to be to view this extravaganza.  Theroads will be clear due  to  the low population density, and meteorologists are indicating that weather expectations should have clear skies.  What  makes Idaho one of the best choices for viewing is that the landscape  of the state could make the whole celestial event even more spectacular.Idaho has high mountain tops along with  its valleys, offering an array of variations for the total eclipse and promises to be an unforgettable show of quickly changing illuminations.  

As it continues on  its path, the solar eclipse will decrease the speed of its transit from 2,900 miles per hour, that it entered with from Oregon,  – to 2,550 miles per hour. This will be the speed when the eclipse meets its next destination in Wyoming. The decreased speed will increase the duration of the scene from 2 minutes and 10 seconds at the most western part of the state – to 2 minutes and 21 seconds at the most eastern part of Idaho.

The second state lucky enough to enjoy the rare event of the total solar eclipse will be left behind by the Umbra at 11:36 AM, MDT, after eleven minutes of travel across the Idaho’s skies, and  the path of totality will be continued in the state of Wyoming.
