Gallatin TN is getting into high gear for the Eclipse 2017. The location is Triple Creek Park for a community celebration, but many people are planning parties of their own to view the once-in-a-lifetime spectacle. Authorities are expecting a huge crowd for the event.
Gallatin is sitting near dead center of the line for longest duration at 2 minutes 40 seconds. This event will be something to tell your grandchildren about for years to come.
It's the first solar eclipse we've experienced in the United States in almost 40 years. It happens when the Earth, Sun and Moon all perfectly line up. The center line for this eclipse travels through 12 states in a 70 mile wide path...and, of course, the best views are at the center line. Gallatin TN is on that center line and will experience totality for the full 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Day will turn into night in Gallatin at about lunchtime.
