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 (which was seen only from part of Hawaii), and the first visible from the contiguous United States since 1979
