Solar Eclipse 2017 Madras Helicopter Tours
Madras, Oregon has been identified as one of the best viewing locations of next year’s solar eclipse, and many are already planning trips to witness this historic event. While lodging in Madras has been full for over a year, we’ll be flying helicopters from Bend, Oregon to Madras from Friday August 18 through Tuesday August 22 to ensure no one is left out of this historic event!
Madras Helicopter Tours and Charters
The City of Madras is promoting Central Oregon’s largest solar eclipse event – Solarfest – featuring music, food, and activities from Friday through Monday. On August 21, 2017, the total solar eclipse will make its way across Madras, Oregon, lasting approximately 2 minutes and 2 seconds. But observers in Madras will have their breath taken away much sooner than that, as the shadow will dance over the peak of stratovolcano Mt. Jefferson and begin to darken 17 seconds before the eclipse. Then, the moon’s shadow will descend upon Madras at an awesome speed of more than 2,000 mph, reaching totality at exactly 10:19:36 a.m. Prepare yourself for two minutes of total cosmic bliss.
