Best place to see 2017 solar eclipse: Gallatin


If seeing a total solar eclipse is on your bucket list, you just hit the jackpot.

One is scheduled for Aug. 21, 2017, and experts say Sumner County residents have an advantage to see a once-in-a-lifetime event better and for longer than most people worldwide.

Gallatin is the place to be,” local astronomy and physics expert Allen Robnett said. “You can’t get much better.”

Gallatin falls right in line with the eclipse’s path, which means that people watching the phenomenon from within the city can see it for a longer time than those in other nearby locations. The absolute best place for this particular eclipse is Hopkinsville, Ky., where people can watch it for three tenths of a second longer than in Gallatin, Robnett said.
