Event Details

Monday, April 8, a partial eclipse of the sun will occur over western Oregon and Washington but we will only get about 23 to 20 percent, but the farther southeast you go the more the disk of the earth covers up the sun.

“The duration of the eclipse will be 1 hour and 46 minutes,” Todd said. “The partial eclipse gets underway at 10:33 a.m. when the Moon makes first contact with the Sun. The maximum eclipse occurs at 11:25 a.m. when the Moon covers 23 percent of the Sun’s diameter at 45 degrees above the southeastern horizon. The partial eclipse will end at 12:19 p.m. as the Moon exits or finishes its trek across the Sun’s surface.”
