Expecting guests with RVs?

Here are Albany’s overnight camping rules

With Albany in the solar eclipse path of totality, residents are inviting family and friends to be here to share the experience. For those planning to bring camp trailers or RVs, here are the local laws that apply:

  • Albany ordinances allow camping in recreational vehicles on a front yard setback for up to 48 hours with the consent of the property owner.  A residential property owner may allow someone to camp in a recreational vehicle on their property for up to seven days in a 90-day period.
  • City ordinances allow motor homes, travel trailers, fifth-wheel trailers, and other recreational vehicles to be parked on public rights-of-way for up to 48 hours with the consent of the adjacent property owner. Without that permission, vehicles may not be on the street for more than 24 hours.
  • Vehicles must not block traffic signs or a driver’s clear view at intersections. In residential neighborhoods where streets are narrow or curved, please leave room for emergency vehicles to get through, and be mindful of vision clearance. Don’t block sidewalks or driveways.
  • Any vehicle or combination of vehicles more than 23 feet long or 8 feet wide cannot be parked on a street, alley, public parking lot, or parking strip between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. on weekdays or all day Saturday, Sunday, and holidays.  

Complete rules for RV parking are in the Albany Municipal Code 13.21.030(12) and 13.36.180(4) online at www.cityofalbany.net/municipalcode

If you see vehicles parked in violation of these rules or have related questions, call the Albany Police Department, 541-917-7680.

About a total eclipse

"This rare cosmic occurrence will turn the summer day dark, reveal stars in the daytime sky, and move the black disk of the moon to where the sun should be."

-LA Times

According to NASA, an eclipse occurs "when one heavenly body such as a moon or planet moves into the shadow of another heavenly body." With a total solar eclipse, "the sun, moon and Earth must be in a direct line ... The people who see the total eclipse are in the center of the moon's shadow when it hits Earth."

A small portion of the sun's top layer, called the corona, will still be viewable during the eclipse, and NASA and other scientists use total eclipses as an opportunity to study the corona itself.

Safely viewing the eclipse

You can view the eclipse safely, but it is vital that you protect your eyes at all times with the proper solar filters.

  • Looking directly at the sun can lead to permanent eye damage or blindness.
  • The only safe way to watch the partial solar eclipse is with special purpose solar filters. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses are not safe. 
  • Look for glasses that meet the ISO 12312-2 standards. Inspect the glasses before using them to make sure they are not scratched or damaged.
  • Always supervise children using solar glasses.
  • Do not look at the sun through an unfiltered camera, cell phone, telescope, binoculars or other optical device, even while using solar glasses. 
  • Make your own pinhole viewer with household materials!
