Many parks in the west will be great viewing locations for this rare eclipse of the sun. Glen Canyon will have one of the best views to see the moon blacken most of the sun while leaving only a slight ring around the outside. This rare event will only last 3-4 minutes in most locations before the sun sets below the horizon. Make sure you are in a location with an unobstructed view of the western horizon and you use Solar Safety Glasses to view the eclipse.
Below are the MST times to best view the eclipse from a variety of hilltop locations within Glen Canyon and the adjacent town of Page, Arizona on May 20.
5:26pm Start of partial eclipse
6:32pm Start of annular eclipse
6:35pm Maximum annular eclipse before sun drops below the horizon
7:31pm Sun sets before the eclipse is complete
