In order to include a truly cosmic event, the dates for the 6th Amazing Earthfest in Kanab, Utah, will be extended by one day to include Sunday, May 20, 2012.
What’s the big event? Use the link below to learn more from NASA about the annular eclipse of the sun that will track directly over Kanab, centering on the Grand Staircase geophysical province of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The total solar eclipse offers rare and outstanding opportunities for outdoor events in astronomy and observation of the eclipse (with approved visual devices), landscape photography in unusual lighting conditions, backcountry hiking, performance arts, etc.
Below is a link provided by amateur astronomer, Mike Satter, former president of Grand Staircase Escalante Partners, www.gsenm.org, for info about the eclipse.
