Aaron Sarver and Deb Telon of Minneapolis, Minnesota, knew they wanted to drive to Indiana to experience the total eclipse on April 8 and originally set their sights on Indianapolis.

However, Boone County’s marketing phrase of “Get Mooned In Boone” caught their eye and the couple decided Lebanon might be a better location.

Sarver is a scientist at the University of Minnesota and loves all things science related, he said, and the eight-hour drive for their group of seven was well worth it for a once in a lifetime event.

Telon received an extra surprise too.

Sarver proposed marriage at Lebanon’s Memorial Park.

“Just as the eclipse was complete and we could take off our glasses, Aaron was on the ground and I was confused. I thought, ‘He’s missing it!’” Telon said. “I was completely shocked. He had to ask me twice.

“The eclipse was a magical experience … when the diamond pattern faded and the ring with the total eclipse (with prominences) appeared, my fiancé proposed to me right at the total eclipse.”
