Tennessee State Parks prep for Solar Eclipse

Posted: Updated:

On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse will cross the entire country, coast-to-coast, for the first time since 1918.

Weather permitting, the entire continent will have the opportunity to view the eclipse as the moon passes in front of the sun, casting a shadow on the Earth’s surface.

The total solar eclipse itself will begin at 1:15 p.m. (EDT) in Lincoln City, Oregon and end at 2:48 p.m. (EDT) near Charleston, South Carolina.

Several Tennessee State Parks will be in the path of the eclipse and several of them have events scheduled to celebrate this once in a lifetime event.

Several of those parks are in the Channel 3 viewing area.

For a list of those parks and park events, visit the Tennessee State Parks website.
