August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

On August 21, 2017 a total eclipse of the sun will be visible across the state of Idaho from Washington County in the west, to Teton County in the east. 19 Idaho counties are in the immediate path of totality. (See Totality Map).

Idaho is considered one of the best places in the country to view this event and at least half a million people are expected to travel to Idaho to witness this impressive occurrence. If you and your family have plans to watch the event and it involves traveling within the state, we encourage you to have a family plan. Have at least one gallon of water per day, per person and non-perishable snacks. Click on the Family Checklist link to access a printable checklist.
