Celestial Sights

Take a morning Scenic Gondola Ride up to 11,053’ to witness a breathtaking Sierra view and the Great American Eclipse of 2017.  At 9AM the moon will begin its orbit to pass in front of the sun. By 10:20AM, you will see a partial solar eclipse, as viewers in Mammoth Lakes will be able to see the moon covering only 80% of the sun. Another solar eclipse will not be seen in California until 2045. Don't miss this opportunity.
