Solar Eclipse in August

This August 21, Nashville, TN will have one of the best views in the United States to view the upcoming solar eclipse.  Middle Tennessee will have around 2 minutes 30 seconds of eclipse and will be right in the path of the total eclipse.  The eclipse will begin at around 1:30 pm, Central Time.

This will be the first time since 1918 that a total solar eclipse has crossed the continental US.  The last time this occurred, the path went from Washington to Florida and this August’s eclipse will have a similar path, from Oregon to South Carolina.  The next time the US will experience a solar eclipse will not be until 2024, so make sure to mark your calendars!
