Camp Floyd – Annular Solar Eclipse
October 14 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
Annular solar eclipse
Maximum Annularity: Approximately 10:15 a.m. local time
Camp Floyd State Park Hours: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
On the morning of October 14, 2023, portions of the American West and Latin America will experience an annular solar eclipse. Unlike a total solar eclipse, the moon does not completely obscure the sun during these events but rather forms what is often called “The Ring of Fire.” Also, unlike a total eclipse, solar glasses are required for safe viewing throughout the entire event.
Camp Floyd State Park stands outside of the zone of annularity, meaning that while the eclipse will still be a significant sight to behold, the “Ring of Fire” will not be visible here. A limited number of Utah State Parks-branded eclipse glasses will be available at the park, free of charge, on a first-come, first-serve basis. These will be distributed to day-use visitors on the morning of the eclipse.
Because Camp Floyd State Park stands outside the zone of annularity, no events are planned inside the state park.
