A Total Solar Eclipse Will Happen August 21st

July 31, 2017



For the first time since 1979, we can see a Total Solar Eclipse during the day. The path will start in Oregon, and will quickly move across the country down to South Carolina, where several million people will see total darkness in the middle of the day. This is going to be so cool!

What you need to know:

  • The Total Solar Eclipse will happen at 1:22pm in Memphis on Monday, August 21st. 
  • Nashville is in a direct path of the Solar Eclipse, and will see 100% darkness for about 2 and 1/2 minutes. 
  • Knoxville will see 99.9% total darkness.
  • Memphis will see 93.2% total darkness.
