AUGUST 2017

COMPILED BY PAMELA A. KEENE

Eclipse close to home
O

BOB POWELL

n Aug. 21, science museums,
observatories and communities will
celebrate the first total solar eclipse
in the lower 48 states since 1979.
The path of the eclipse skirts the
northeast corner of Georgia, creating
95 percent darkness in many places.
Young Harris, Blairsville, Clayton and
Toccoa will be inside the path of
totality-see bit.ly/ectmap for more
information on the eclipse's path.
Anyone planning to view the
eclipse should not look directly at the sun during the eclipse; this can damage your
vision. Use solar sunshades or special viewing glasses from reputable suppliers.
Special activities and/or live streams will be offered throughout the day at several locations, including the Tellus Science Museum, Cartersville, tellusmuseum.org,
(770) 606-5700; Coca-Cola Space Science Center, Columbus, www.ccssc.org, (706)

Science Center, Atlanta, fernbank.org, (404) 929-6300; and the observatory at the
University of West Georgia, Carrollton, bit.ly/uwgaob, (678) 839-5000.
The moon begins covering the sun at about 1 p.m., and the eclipse ends just
after 4 p.m. See bit.ly/timsoec for specific times by community.
