Ranch at the Canyons chosen by Airbnb and National Geographic as the location for the “Night At” solar eclipse event
Ranch at the Canyons can finally reveal that it was chosen as the location for the historical “Night At” event for the 2017 solar eclipse.
The once in a lifetime event organized by Airbnb and National Geographic saw two lucky guests spend a night in a specially constructed geodome placed at Ranch at the Canyons. The overnight guests were joined by noted astrophysicist Dr. Jedidah Isler as well as master National Geographic night-sky photographer and science journalist Babak Tafreshi who documented the experience to a massive social media following. The two guests were then off on a private jet to meet the solar eclipse on the path of totality across the United States.
Although the exact location of the “Night At” event was unknown during the media frenzy leading up to the event date, the location has been revealed as Landholding 6, named the “Steeples” for the prominent natural terrain and dramatic rockscape vistas of this home site at Ranch at the Canyons. It is situated in shadow distance of world-famous natural obelisk of Monkey Face at Smith Rock. The silhouette of these pinnacles frames out the sky for un-paralleled star viewing and occasionally, a rare total solar eclipse viewing.
Chamese Christianson, realtor for Ranch at the Canyons said, “the few remaining acreages as well as the homes currently offered at Ranch at the Canyons are awe-inspiring. Residents who get to call this place home are treated to a wealth of natural phenomenon not available anywhere else in the world where every single night can become their own personal “Night At” Ranch at the Canyons.”
