There will be a annular solar eclipse on Oct 14th -- and Bryce Canyon looks to be inside the 90% lines -- https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/eclipses/2023/oct-14-annular/where-when/
My guess from the web site is that annularity begins around 10:26 am local time and lasts 4-5 minutes -- (with sunrise around 7:30 am) -- So I think the sun will be about 45 degrees above the horizon. So there could be some interesting compositions in amongst the pillars and spires. I'm also thinking this will be good practice for the full solar eclipse on 4/8/2024 -- https://eclipsophile.com/2024tse/ -- An event we should discuss separately.
I'm planning on arriving on Weds 10/11 and will spend Thurs & Friday scoping out a good location. I've booked a room at the Bryce Canyon Pines Lodge (about 10 minutes from the park) -- (1Q --> $116/night before tax).
There is an RV park and restaurant close by. There are no rooms at the Lodge in the park, and all the other hotel offerings looked to be more expensive. However, the Pines Lodge has a 10% non-refundable deposit.
If anyone is interested in making this a club group outing, please email me at email@example.com and we'll search for a good time to get together to discuss specifics.
SVPS members will participate in the member show in 2024. The exact dates have not been determined, but will probably be in May and June.
