After helping some friends out at the 2017, Best In The Desert, Vegas to Reno Desert Race, we ventured up from the Pony Express Trail near Silver Springs, NV to Weiser, Idaho in the Outback of the USA to witness the Solar Eclipse in Totality. Weiser is a great little town that just suffered through a horrible winter that damaged many homes and buildings. The town pulled it all together and presented a great weekend full of festivities and small town hospitality.
The video is about 9 minutes long capturing the total eclipse a bit after 3 minutes in. During the entire duration, we witnessed the changing light and felt the temperature changes. When totality occurred, the entire town let out a cheer, which you can here on the video.
Remember, this is a 360 degree video – you can pan all around and look up or down. It’s like being there. For best results, view the video on a desktop or laptop computer. The Youtube Mobile interface for the video does not always render the 360 degree, VR experience.
