Spectacle in the sky brings AIS concerns to the Cowboy State

A total solar eclipse hasn’t occurred in the contiguous U.S. since 1979; however, the last time there was a total solar eclipse visible in Wyoming was all they way back in 1918. It is a rare event that is expected to draw massive crowds to the Cowboy State.

This year’s eclipse will impact nine counties in Wyoming and the Wind River Reservation, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT). The rare event will see a path of totality swing from Oregon to South Carolina. The path of totality is where viewers can witness a total solar eclipse. Pinedale sits just a few miles south of the path of totality, meaning there is the potential for a large influx of visitors to come to Sublette County for the eclipse.  Click on the following sentence to access the full story.
