Eclipse at Valley River RV Resort

Anyone in America can see a partial eclipse, but you are hoping to find a convenient spot to stop and observe the total eclipse. Fortunately for you, the Valley River RV Resort is a prime place to find your spot in the sun. Take the time to rest and relax in a premiere site while seeing a once in a lifetime event.

Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all North America will be treated to a solar eclipse. Anyone here in the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. North Carolina is only going to get a fraction of the totality, so we are where you will want to be.

Timing

Before you see the total eclipse, there will be a period of partial eclipse. When you’re staying with us, that partial eclipse will start at 1:05 PM (EDT). This partial eclipse will continue until the start of the totality at 2:34 PM (EDT). The totality will last approximately 2 minutes and 28 seconds.

Safety

You’ll want to protect your eyes during the eclipse. According to NASA, regular sunglasses won’t cut it. You’ll need special eclipse glasses that you can get from local science museums, schools, and astronomy clubs. The only time you can look directly at the sun without glasses will be during the totality. For the rest of the experience you should be wearing your eclipse glasses.
