1 Million visitors will view the Eclipse in Central Oregon on Aug. 21st, and that number doesn’t include the locals who will be watching as well. 1% of those 1 million+ who view the eclipse on its path of totality will be immediately transformed into “Eclipse Addicts”. 1% doesn’t seem like much, but 1% of 1 Million people means at least 10,000 spectators have no idea that they will soon be joining the ranks of the self proclaimed “Eclipse Chasers”.
From all walks of life, these “Umbraphiles” are an ever growing community of shadow lovers who undergo such an intense reaction to the beautiful reality of an eclipse that it quickly & drastically changes their life. Many leave behind careers, homes, & worldly possessions, coming together from varying cultures, countries, classes, religions, etc. They all share one unified goal: To view as many sensational Eclipse events as possible.
Would you be surprised to know that Worldwide, there is a Total Solar Eclipse event roughly once every 16 months? The majority of people only see one if it happens to chance by close enough to travel to easily. If you are one of the few who get the Eclipse itch, you’ll be going the distance every time, regardless of how or where.
There seems to be an inexplicable force driving this momentum. When asked to explain their reasoning, every Chaser answers the same: “You just have to experience it yourself to understand... There are no words…” Will you be the next to join them?
Imagine: Traveling from country to country, experiencing new cultures and landscapes, all with the vision of plasma auras dancing in your thoughts, planning and waiting for the next precious moments of an experience that has you hooked!
