OSU Plans To Host Eclipse Festival


Oregon State University will hold a 3-day festival during the August 21st solar eclipse.  They’ll be providing limited lodging in their dorms for visitors.

Corvallis is in the path of totality for the solar Eclipse this summer. Jill Peters with OSU says the corona around the sun will be visible for 1 minute and 40 seconds on that Monday morning.
Peters: “Which many people are saying is one of the most beautiful things they’ve ever seen. A lot of people say it’s a very moving, spiritual experience. It’s something that, for people here, will probably be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
Peters says the campus’s open fields will be great for eclipse viewing. OSU plans several family-friendly activities, including music and a photography workshop August 19th through 21st. The school will accept reservations starting May 23rd for lodging at the University dorms during the 3-day eclipse festival. It’s called the OSU-150 Space Grant Festival, part of the University’s year-long sesquicentennial celebration.
