Mark your calendars for Aug. 21, 2017. That’s the date when a total solar eclipse will be coming to the U.S., and some Tennessee residents will have a front-row seat for the show.

Middle Tennessee residents in Clarksville, Springfield, Portland, Westmoreland and Nashville will all get a look at the total eclipse. Franklin, Kingston Springs, and Brentwood residents should head northeast to make sure they get in the totality zone.

Unfortunately, Chattanooga and Knoxville are both outside of the path, and Memphis will only see a partial eclipse (which means you need to wear eye protection!).

    Please double check the need for eye protection for partial eclipses because according to NASA a partial eclipse is the time you need protection due to the light intensity and possible blindness. Below is the nasa page I’m using as a reference. By all means if I’m misunderstanding something please correct me. https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEhelp/safety.html
