Total Solar Eclipse – August 21: Party & Safety

ANGOLA – August 21st is the Total Solar Eclipse … Go to Pokagan State Park in Angola and enjoy the Total Solar Eclipse Party from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.!

On this special afternoon, the Pokagon Naturalists and local astronomers from the Astronomical Society of Hillsdale County will be on the Potawatomi Inn’s lawn to observe and interpret this event! Thanks to our Steuben County Tourism there will be safe solar viewing glasses, small solar crafts, and some eclipse-themed treats for everyone to enjoy while supplies last.

Note: If you can’t make the party at Pokagan, find out how to view the eclipse safely, what you can expect to see, etc., here.

The last total solar eclipse viewed from contiguous United States was on Feb. 26, 1979 whose path passed through the northwestern U.S. states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. After the August 2017 total solar eclipse, the next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the continental United States will be on October 14, 2023 which will be visible from Northern California to Florida. Following this, we will have a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 visible from Texas to Maine.
