A total solar eclipse will take place on Monday, August 21, 2017

Preregistration has ended but remaining spaces will be available on a first come, first served basis while they last starting at 9:30 when the gates open.  On the day of the event admission will be $10 plus $5 for a Food and Beverage Permit if you choose to bring in “outside food, drinks, coolers, etc”.  Check out the Franklin KY Facebook Eclipse Page for everything going on that weekend.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometers wide.

This eclipse will be the first total solar eclipse visible from the United States since the solar eclipse of July 11, 1991[3] (which was seen only from part of Hawaii),[4] and the first visible from the contiguous United States since 1979
