“Night at Solar Eclipse” Nat Geo―Airbnb Contest Winner… A Spectacular Experience!

Nestled in the beautiful wilderness area of Terrebonne, “Night at Solar Eclipse” was a once in a lifetime opportunity to observe the 2017 August 21st, Solar Eclipse amidst Oregon’s natural scenic wonders. Airbnb’s home rental site teamed up with National Geographic to experience the phenomena “in the most inspiring way possible”, stargazing in the dome followed by a spectacular aerial glimpse of the oncoming eclipse in its full glory.

Airbnb’s Hottest Listing Was Something Money Can’t Buy
Not your typical Airbnb listing, the icing on the cake was a memorable stargazing evening in the dome, hosted by explorer and renowned astrophysicist, Dr. Jedidah Isler. Everyone had the best seat in the house seated around the dome’s spacious deck.

The best experience ever awaited the excited guests! The morning of the well-orchestrated Solar Eclipse event, the guests boarded a private jet to witness the eclipse from celestial heights.  Hostess, Dr. Isler had previously stated, “By the time you land, you might have a new appreciation for nature’s awesome ability to bring us all together.”
