For those of you that have been waiting for a good reason to visit Grand Canyon National Park, the National Park Service has just announced three. Endangered Species Day, Celebrate Wildlife Day, and the events surrounding an annular eclipse will occur on consecutive days from May 16-18. After two days learning about, and interacting with, some of the amazing creatures that call Grand Canyon home, visitors will be treated to a spectacular show as the moon passes before the sun around sunset. The rare spectacle will most likely treat onlookers to a glowing “ring” around our nearest celestial neighbor.
It doesn’t get much better than this folks. So gas up the car, load up the picnic basket, and make a beeline to the greatest show on Earth.
