Symbiosis is a festival that moves and according to celestial and other epic scenic locations. This time, that celestial scene appearing in the Reno area is the position of the moon in front of the sun, an eclipse that begins shortly after 5 p.m., Sunday. Only a few places are graced with being able to take advantage of this astro-tourism.
The Reno area is one of only four places in the nation where this eclipse, called an “annular eclipse” will be fully visible.
