This fall, for the first time in 11 years, an annular solar eclipse will be visible from the western United States. A rare and impressive sight, this breed of eclipse occurs when the outer edge of the sun mimics a luminous, ring-like spectacle, often referred to as a “ring of fire.” Arizona hospitality properties in the Four Corners and Lake Powell area, which fall directly under the eclipse path, are capitalizing on the phenomenon with solar programming like Lake Powell Resort & Marinas’ Ring of Fire packages. The Ring of Fire Eclipse Houseboat Package includes 20 percent off houseboat rentals and 60 percent off powerboat add-ons. The Ring of Fire Eclipse Lodge Package offers a two-night stay and two tickets for the Ring of Fire boat tour (check website for availability and pricing).“We recommend taking time to enjoy the beauty of the dark sky to see the Milky Way and other cosmic wonders,” says Lisa Cesaro, senior director of marketing for Aramark Destinations. “My one tip is that the evenings are cool, so be prepared with the right clothing and bring layers.” The eclipse will occur on Saturday, October 14, and will begin at approximately 8:09 a.m. in the Page area.
