The City of Goodlettsville will be a prime location to view the Great American Eclipse that will occur on Monday, August 21 this year, as it lies within the mere 70-mile wide path the eclipse will take across the United States of America. The eclipse will enter the U.S. in Oregon and exit North America in South Carolina. Goodlettsville will experience a total solar eclipse for 2 minutes 27 seconds! That’s just 14 seconds less than the maximum duration of totality possible. This is truly a once in a lifetime event, as the last total eclipse to come through this area was in 1478, and the next is projected to occur in about 550 years!
The City of Goodlettsville and the Goodlettsville Area Chamber of Commerce are joining together to hold the Get Eclipsed in Goodlettsville event on Monday, August 21, 2017 at Moss-Wright Park from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Event-goers will be provided a free pair of special protective glasses to view the eclipse. There will be food for purchase, as well as, “water wars” to cool off with the Goodlettsville Fire Department beginning at 10:30am.
