A solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Earth and Sun. The Solar Eclipse will be on August 21, 2017. It is the first recorded Solar Eclipse that Tennessee will be able to view. This is also the first total Solar Eclipse in the U.S. since 1979. If you go to Nashville you will be able to see the total Solar Eclipse. Memphis however, will not be able to see the total Solar Eclipse. Many states will see the eclipse including Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas and others. People will come from everywhere to see this eclipse and there are expected to be over 2 million people in the Middle Tennessee area. If you are lucky enough to travel to see this(which if you are at school you will) remember that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You probably will not get this chance again. Most places will not see the Solar Eclipse, but most of Tennessee will be able to see it. The ideal place to be is on a balcony with low buildings surrounding it or an open field or area. Another thing to know that to see the solar eclipse you need special glasses or you might suffer from severe sight loss or you might even go blind! Remember to not take them off. Overall, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and to not take this for granted.
