THE GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE
NASHVILLE, TN * AUGUST 17 - 21, 2017

http://InsightCruises.com/Sky-8
Get more mileage out of your eclipse experience when
you combine it with a classic summer vacation.
Join Sky & Telescope for The Great American Eclipse
of August 17-21, 2017. Based amidst the many attractions
of Nashville, Tennessee, we plan to view the eclipse near the point
of greatest eclipse (see also the green "GE" drop pin below) near
Hopkinsville, Kentucky. From the Oregon desert to the Carolina coast,
we've scrutinized the data and factors for viewing sites. Clear skies,
duration, maneuverability, remoteness, and potential activities are all
part of the equation, and Hopkinsville is a terrific all-around location.
Official kickoff is August 17, 2017, in Nashville, Tennessee. In vacation
mode, get to know the region's rolling hills and dense woods in an
encounter with Stones River National Battlefield, then a relaxing
sojourn in Lynchburg including a Jack Daniel's Distillery sampling
tour. Absorb the latest in contemporary astronomy in sessions with
Drs. Stassun and Weintraub from Vanderbilt University. We'll also spend
the morning at Vanderbilt University's Dyer Observatory in science
conversation, solar observation, and enjoyment of nature. Check out
Nashville's unparallelled music scene. Hopkinsville welcomes you
eclipse day, August 21, with good viewing prospects in a site with all
the features you need on a hot summer day. Join Sky & Telescope for
a relaxing and memorable eclipse experience in the Nashville region.
Reserve now as this eclipse experience is certain to sell out.
