Sheridan is not going to see a 100% total eclipse this summer - but we are in line for a 96% one! And YOU need a safe place from which to witness it.


On Monday, August 21 from 10:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., join us on the lawn of the Trail End State Historic Site to watch this once-in-a-lifetime event. Bring a comfortable lawn chair or blanket and relax while the sun and moon do their celestial dance in the skies above. Maximum coverage should take place at about 11:42 a.m.


We will have a limited number of optometrist-approved Eclipse Shades (glasses) on hand, but everyone is recommended to bring their own. DO NOT LOOK AT THE SOLAR ECLIPSE WITHOUT ADEQUATE EYE PROTECTION!!


NOTE: The museum will be closed during this time so our employees can also view the eclipse. They will be on the grounds to answer any questions you might have.  


​For more information, contact Trail End at 307-674-4589. 


By the way - If you want to make your own solar eclipse viewer, our TechnoPast students can show you the way. Watch their Solar Eclipse 2017 video on YouTube!
