NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — The total solar eclipse will be a once-in-a-lifetime event for most people in the Nashville area.
But looking directly at the sun during the eclipse can be damaging to the eyes.
The partial eclipse will start just before noon before on Aug. 21. The moon completely blocks out the sun around 1:27 p.m. on Aug. 21. Nashville will be among the areas with a front-row-seat to the eclipse. The moon will cast a shadow smaller than the Earth, meaning only those areas in the shadow will see the eclipse.
