Eclipse Viewing at Indian Cave State Park

On August 21 at 1:22 p.m., the moon will pass between the Earth and the sun casting a shadow across the USA from coast to coast. The maximum eclipse will occur at 2:42 p.m.in our area when about 80-percent of the sun will be covered.

The drop-in event that we are hosting on Saturday, Aug. 12, will help Unicoi County get ready for the big day. Attendance is limited, so register here.

A rare solar eclipse is taking place on August 21 - and America's national parks are getting in on it. The park offers great vistas for Eclipse viewing, as well as camping, horse back riding, hiking, and exploring the cave area.

Rain or an overcast sky will certainly put a damper (no pun intended) to what is one of the most anticipated celestial events of the year and the first coast to coast eclipse in nearly 100 years. Solar eclipse glasses will be provided to participants.

The College of Southern Idaho Herrett Center for Arts and Science is running a contest to win passes to The Great American Mackay Solar Eclipse Campout. "We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse". Homemade sun filters and regular sunglasses don't provide sufficient eye protection.

Earlier this week, the American Astronomical Society warned that counterfeit glasses were being sold online, and urged the public to find a reputable vendor when purchasing the specs.

NASA has also listed multiple ways to view the eclipse safely.
