Beginning at 9:05 a.m. on August 21 in Salem, Oregon, the Moon will slowly begin to move in front of the Sun, eventually covering it completely at 10:18. Totality — the time where the Moon fully eclipses the Sun — will last for approximately 1 minute, 54 seconds. For many, this will be a once in a lifetime event.
The purpose of this site is to disseminate information from the Marion County / City of Salem (Oregon) Joint Information Center/System. Information regarding the August 21, 2017 eclipse will come from Marion County, City of Salem and other local, state and federal agencies.
