THE GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE IS COMING...

 MONDAY, AUGUST 21, 2017 | Begins: 11:58 a.m., Totality: 1:27 p.m., Ends: 2:54 p.m.

On August 21, a rare, total solar eclipse will sweep across the continental U.S. for the first time since 1918, and Nashville will be the biggest city in its path. For Nashvillians, the sight will truly be once-in-a-lifetime; the next total solar eclipse visible in Nashville will be in the year 2566. Check back here soon for ASC's 2017 Solar Eclipse Guide, a valuable primer on all things eclipse: from the science behind the spectacle to viewing safety to eclipses in history along with tips on finding the best viewing spot and photography.
