Those of us staying at home on April 8 will still have reason to look up.

Zoom in: While Nashville isn't in the path of totality, we'll still see a partial eclipse that comes pretty close.

State of play: In Nashville, the partial solar eclipse will last from around 12:44pm- 3:20pm, according to NASA.

  • At its peak, about 95% of the sun will be covered in the Nashville area. That should take place at about 2:03pm.
  • Rutherford County schools will be closed on eclipse day.

The bottom line: Dig out your eclipse glasses from 2017 (or pick up a new pair) to be ready no matter where you are.
