BIKE RIDE AT THE OMSI LUNAR ECLIPSE PARTY Link
OMSI, 1945 SE Water Ave, Portland Take Trimet (meet at bike racks in the OMSI Front Plaza)
8:45pm
A total lunar eclipse occurs the evening of Jan. 20, and OMSI is having an outdoor viewing party for it. The bike ride will leave OMSI at near totality to view the eclipse along the adjacent Springwater Corridor. This will be a good viewing area, as this path starting about a mile South of OMSI turns into one of the darkest places in Portland. The darkness is due to the area being a nature preserve, so lighting is not allowed. The path also has a new salmon culvert with a viewing platform on top where the ride will pause before heading back to OMSI. The total eclipse lasts 8:41-9:43 and the ride leaves at 8:55. OMSI may cancel the party for bad weather, but the bike ride takes place regardless. You never know when the clouds might break!
