What is a Solar Eclipse

“A solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth that either fully or partially blocks the Sun’s light in some areas. This only happens occasionally, because the Moon doesn’t orbit in the exact same plane as the Sun and Earth do,” according to NASA.

While middle Tennessee isn’t in the path of totality, areas are expected to see approximately 92.1% – 95.9% totality, depending on where you live. You can learn more about what you can expect to see in your area by clicking here and inputting your city.
