Sundial Bridge, Redding, CA


Sundial Bridge, Redding, California
Sundial Bridge in Redding, CA is an example of a site that one might choose to view Sunday's eclipse from. It is within the region in which the maximum eclipse will occur and has a good view of the western horizon. The details given by MICA for the eclipse at this location are shown below.
There is also an interactive map at the NASA Eclipse site. One can zoom in on the map to any location and then click on it to get details for the eclipse. The Redding forecast for Sunday is "Partly Cloudy" with about 40% overcast and so one will probably be somewhat at the mercy of the weather. One should also note that the clouds tend to be thicker towards the horizon.
