The clock is counting down to the 2017 Solar Eclipse. Spartanburg County and parts of surrounding counties will be in the path of totality for this awe-inspiring eclipse of the Sun on August 21, 2017. The rest of the Eastern United States will see only a partial eclipse. This spectacular event will engulf Spartanburg at 2:39PM (EST) in a dark shadow for around two minutes, giving observers a once in a lifetime celestial experience!
A total solar eclipse is when the Sun is covered entirely by the Moon, the sky deeply darkens, the temperature cools, and the Sun’s corona becomes visible.
