Kentucky Tourism Dept. Launches 2017 Solar Eclipse Site
Less than a year away now from a total solar eclipse expected to draw thousands of tourists to western Kentucky, the Kentucky Department of Travel and Tourism has launched a website for the event.
It will be the first total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States since 1979, and its epicenter runs through western Kentucky, with the “point of greatest eclipse” in Christian County.
The website includes a map of prime viewing locations, eclipse duration information for each location and eye safety tips.
The eclipse will occur on Monday, August 21, 2017.
