Best Solar Eclipse Viewing Events in the Tennessee River Valley

Best Solar Eclipse Viewing Events in the Tennessee River Valley

Those areas are in the path of totality, meaning you'll get to see the longest and darkest views from there.

The "path of totality", in which the moon's shadow sweeps across the Earth's surface, will cross parts of 12 states: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and SC.

Shannon Garde, a technology specialist and director of Creative Studios at Edmon Low Library, said a telescope will be set up to project a roughly 2x3 foot projection so people can safely watch the eclipse.

As with all eclipses, staring up into the sun is a profoundly bad idea, so you absolutely don't want to eyeball the celestial show without solar-eclipse glasses.

"Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse ("totality"), when the moon entirely blocks the sun's bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality", according to NASA.

On Aug. 21, part of OR will see the moon completely block the sun's face in a total solar eclipse. It is also the closest city to the eclipse's point of the greatest duration (2 minutes and 41.6 seconds). That's when the moon appears to take a bite out of the sun's disk.

The partial eclipse of the moon occurs when part of the sunlight which fall on the moon's surface are blocked by Earth.

Jefferson County will host Totality Fest from August 17 through August 20, with unique programs and events planned for our visitors and our residents.




The USA's best solar eclipse ever is coming August 21. Additionally, the broadcast will include live coverage of activities in parks, libraries, stadiums, festivals and museums across the nation, and on social media.

The last time Malaysia saw the partial eclipse of the moon was in March a year ago.

Viewing starts at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2 pm.

August 1, 6 p.m.

"Photographing the solar eclipse coming up is going to bring some challenges for your average camera and your average person, but [it's] nothing that can't be overcome", Whittaker said.

Events such as this intrigue people and spark an interest in science, she added. But I'm not sure how many people are actually able to look at astronomical objects with their own eyes because of all the light pollution.

Using a lens with a focal range of 100mm-400mm is optimal so you can fill the frame with the eclipse.
