National Geographic and Airbnb have teamed up to treat two budding astrophysicists (or just you and your mom) to a stay in this cool geodesic dome in a remote area in Oregon the night before the eclipse.
However, the real prize is watching the momentous occasion from the comfort of a private jet that will fly the winners high in the sky, following the eclipse’s path.
The dreamy geodesic pod is located in a remote area of Oregon, and comes complete with an observation deck and with a variety of telescopes.
Upon arriving on the 20th, the winners will be met by their hosts: Dr. Jedidah Isler, a National Geographic Explorer and the first African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in Astrophysics from Yale University and, Babak Tafreshi, a renowned National Geographic photographer and science journalist.
Right before the actual eclipse is visible from the ground, the two lucky winners will board a small private jet at the nearby Redmond Municipal Airport.
The pilot will take off over the Oregon shore – flying west while following the Path of Totality – in order to be witness to the very first moments of the eclipse from high in the sky.
