Eclipse: The Sun Revealed

Loading Events

Get ready for the next Great American Eclipse!

On April 8, 2024, the Moon will cast its shadow on the Earth, tracing a narrow path across North America. If you stand in just the right place you will see the Moon cover up the Sun in a total solar eclipse!

Unlike the 2017 eclipse, Nashville will not be in the path of totality: we will see 95% of the Sun covered by the Moon. That's a lot, but without totality you'll miss the rare view of the Sun's outer atmosphere, the corona.

In the meantime, Nashville will also see a partial solar eclipse on October 14, 2023, during which 50% of the Sun's face will be eclipsed by the Moon.

Don't miss the incredible experience! Learn how to safely observe eclipses, why they happen, and how the study of eclipses has advanced science.
