Solar Eclipse 2017 Path Map of Tennessee

It has been almost 100 years since the last total solar eclipse traced a path across the contiguous United States, and went from the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast. The last time we could witness such a phenomenon was in 1918. In fact, it has been almost 38 years since the last total solar eclipse was visible from any of the states in continental US. The Great American Eclipse of August 21st, 2017, is thus a very rare phenomenon that is likely to attract thousands of eclipse watchers from across the world to the United States.

The eclipse makes its way across central Tennessee but missing most of the western counties and some of the eastern parts of the state. Some of the primary cities, towns, and communities that fall in the path of the total eclipse include:
