NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The countdown has begun for a total eclipse of the sun.
In exactly 365 days from Sunday, on August 21, 2017, the eclipse will be visible in Nashville.

That's why members of the Barnard-Seyfert Astronomical Society in Nashville hosted an Eclipse Watch Party Sunday at the Parthenon.
This eclipse will be the first in nearly 100 years to cross the United States, which has earned it the name the “American Eclipse.”

The last total eclipse at the Parthenon site was in 1478.
After the 2017 eclipse in Nashville, the next will be in the year 2566.
