For the first time in 99 years, Americans will be viewing a coast to coast total solar eclipse Monday. The path of the total eclipse will cover much of Wyoming, with 94% of the sun being covered by the moon in Northwest Colorado. For those interested, there are a number of eclipse viewing parties in the area. Colorado Parks and Wildlife will host an eclipse celebration today at Yampa River State Park from 11 to 12:30. There will be games, crafts and eclipse trivia. Eclipse viewing glasses may also be available as supplies are limited. There will also be an eclipse viewing party in Craig at Colorado Northwestern Community College. Attendees will have the opportunity to make an eclipse pinhole viewer and will also be able to view the eclipse using a telescope. The viewing party will be held 10 to 1. In our area, the eclipse will start around 10:15 this morning, with the maximum coverage occurring around 11:40. The eclipse will end just after 1 this afternoon.
