Total Eclipse of the Sun: Aug 21 , 2017
There will be a total eclipse of the Sun on August 21, 2017, it will pass over King Mountain, Idaho area at 11:32 AM. Many hang glider and paraglider pilots are planning to make a road trip to fly for a few days and camp here to experience the Total Eclipse.
A total solar eclipse happens every 18 months. HOWEVER, only a very small part of earth can see the eclipse from the the ground, so they seem rare.
The last eclipse to travel across the USA happened in June 1918. Don’t Miss This One.
Check out the video links to view the path of the Eclipse. Most hotels are SOLD OUT along the path, so plan NOW.
We have heard that pilots from Sylmar (Los Angeles, CA), Wings of Rigollo (San Jose, CA),, MCHGA (Marin Hang Gliding Association), and Sonoma Wings (Santa Rosa, CA) are planning to make the trip. It should be epic. What an experience.
Yours truly, the webmaster will probably not be making the trek to King Mountain this summer, (last summer in late June was great), but we can at least keep the website up to date. Those who are thinking of camping and using King Mountain Glider Park should contact John Kangas.

Soar high, soar far, and have fun.
