Solar Eclipse 2017

August 21, 2017

Total Solar Eclipse

There will be a Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017. Beginning at about noon, the Moon will begin to travel in front of the Sun, a solar eclipse. The path of this eclipse crosses the entire continental US, so this is also a nationwide event, but a section of Middle Tennessee is fortunate to be in the path of totality. The eclipse will take place at approximately 1:30 pm CST. The eclipse will last 51 seconds in Murfreesboro, 1 minute and 32 seconds in Smyrna, and 1 minute and 38 seconds in La Vergne.
