Chiloquin Annular Eclipse Events

The Chiloquin Eclipse Events were very successful and loads of fun. Contact me if your community would like an astronomy celebration. No eclipse necessary.


There is an annular eclipse passing through parts of the United States on Saturday, October 14, 2023. The town of Chiloquin, Oregon is near the center line. I am involved in a series of events. All events are free and family friendly. Contact me if you have questions or are interested in helping.

Wednesday, October 11, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Eclipse Presentation, Klamath County Museum, 1451 Main Street, Klamath Falls, Oregon

I will give a family friendly presentation on eclipses in general and annular eclipses in particular. There will be hands-on activities for children and adults. Free, open to the public.

Thursday, October 12, School Activities, Chiloquin Schools, all school day

Amy and I will be providing interactive eclipse lessons to the K - 12 students at Chiloquin schools. Amy is focussing on writing activities and I will teach the science of eclipses. These lessons are not open to the public, but we could use a few assistants. I am working on getting storytellers to provide multicultural eclipse and related stories. Contact me if you are interested. 

My lesson plans, presentations, and activities are here.

Thursday, October 12, Star Party, Spinks Community Park, Chiloquin, 7:00 - 11:00 pm

Friday is a teacher grading day and the students have the day off from school. Amy and I will host fun eclipse activities for all ages from 1 - 3 pm.

At 3 pm, Dr. Darci Snowden of Central Washington University will present an overview of the research project that she and her students are conducting on the grounds of Chiloquin High School during the eclipse. They will be launching a balloon an hour for 30 straight hours. Free, open to the public.
