A look at what the Oregon eclipse will look like in 2023.No matter the time of year, the Pacific Northwest is home to picturesque sights. For guests at The Embarcadero Resort, there are countless ways to get outdoors and surround yourself with Mother Nature’s beauty. Every once in a while, a natural phenomenon occurs and adds to the breathtaking views. Such an event is taking place in 2023, and now is the ideal time to plan your trip to our Oregon town to witness the annular eclipse.

What Is an Annular Eclipse?

There are several types of eclipses, and the one occurring in October of 2023 is an annular eclipse. During this type of eclipse, the moon appears smaller than the sun and does not fully cover it. This makes it appear as if there is a ring around the moon, often referred to as the “ring of fire.”

When and How Can You View It?

The 2023 annular eclipse is projected to begin at 8:05 a.m. on Oct. 14 and end at 10:38 a.m. Newport is one of the few towns on the coast where it will be visible. If the weather cooperates, the Oregon town will be one of the first places in the country to witness the event. 

As the moon does not entirely block the sun, it is important you do not look directly at the sun without some type of specialized eye protection. This includes eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer. Another safe viewing option is an indirect method like a pinhole projector.
