Don’t Get Left in the Dark
We’re a week out from 2017’s most exciting cosmic event—do you have plans? On August 21, for the first time in 99 years, a solar eclipse will cross the country. Watch as the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, creating an impressive shadow. A word of caution to eager viewers: don’t look at the eclipse without special glasses on. Around the moon, which will look like a hole in the sky, the “corona,” or the sun’s atmosphere, will still be visible. Like looking at the sun, gazing at an eclipse can also harm your eyes.
For Nashville’s best celebration, head over to L.A. Jackson at the top of the Thompson. From 11 AM through 2 PM, the restaurant will serve eclipse-themed food (moon pies, anyone?), tunes by DJ Mighty Quinn, and drink specials. Plus, they’ll offer eclipse-viewing glasses and Tarot card readings. Come see what’s in the cards.
