Get Involved! Solar Eclipse Events Guide in the West

Solar Eclipse Event Guide

With the nation abuzz over the solar eclipse arriving on August 21st, it’s no surprise that Taylor Morrison home owners are suddenly developing a newfound interest in astronomy! View the eclipse from the comfort of your own new construction home or take to the stars by participating in eclipse related events near our Western Divisions.

Even if your new home community isn’t located within the path of the total eclipse, a partial eclipse will be view-able from every location in America.

Is your forever home in a different location?

Don’t worry, we have you covered. Check out these other Solar Eclipse guides and resources.

Pro Tip: According to NASA, the ideal viewing location is one with clear skies. You’re better off seeing a shorter eclipse with unobstructed views than a longer eclipse under clouds.


Bay Area

  • The San Jose Astronomical Association will be hosting a viewing party at Houge Park from 9am to noon. The SJAA asks that you please RSVP if you plan to attend.
  • In the East Bay, visit Chabot Space & Science Center. Free event runs from 8am-1pm and eclipse glasses will be available for purchase on site.


Southern California





  • The Denver Center for Astronomy invites you to the The University of Denver’s historic Chamberlin Observatory. See their Open House schedule for related viewing events.

Safety First!

The only way to safely look directly at the partially eclipsed sun is with special-purpose solar filters (solar eclipse glasses). Viewing the eclipse through regular sunglasses or a camera will lead to permanent damage to your eyes.

Please consult NASA’s special 2017 Solar Eclipse Safety Guide prior to the event.
