Airbnb Wants To Help People View The Upcoming Eclipse With An Astrophysicist At A Dream Location
Airbnb and National Geographic have teamed up to offer a contest for eclipse enthusiasts
If you haven’t yet booked your trip to view the August 21 eclipse—the first total solar eclipse to be visible across the United States in 99 years—a new contest from Airbnb and National Geographic might pique your interest.
The two companies teamed up to offer a chance for two lucky winners to view the first moments of the eclipse from a small private jet and then stay in a geodesic dome equipped with telescopes in the Oregon desert.
Contestants can enter on Airbnb’s website for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet Dr. Jedidah Isler, a National Geographic Explorer who was the first African American woman to receive a PhD in astrophysics from Yale University. Just be prepared to put away your phone and forget about social media during the experience—the contest warns entrants that they likely will not have strong phone signals or wifi access.
