On August the 21st, 2017, the path of a rare total solar eclipse will cross Western Kentucky. Though the entire process will last around a couple hours, beginning at about 1:20 CST, the New Moon will be directly in front of the Sun, blocking out the sun for almost 3 minutes. Hope for clear skies on this “magic” day. Below is a graphic illustrating the “path of totality”. Also, download this Solar Eclipse Safety.pdf file.
Looking directly at the sun, even during a total eclipse, can cause permanent and severe eye damage. Below are two safety videos to assist with your safe viewing of the eclipse.
