Dawson Springs is in the path of totality for the Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017!  Observers there will see (appx.) 2 minutes and  32 seconds of totality!

map_kentucky_dawson_springsSky Watchers  all over the world– professionals, amateurs, and the rest of us who are in awe and wonder of the natural world have our sites set on August 21, 2017, for the total solar eclipse of the sun.  This eclipse can be experienced in the USA with a path of totality crossing our Pacific and Atlantic coasts.   While this eclipse will be the first since 1918 to take its path over the USA as described, the ideal location to view it will be nestled in the heart of western Kentucky.

The exact location is situated on the Orchard Dale historical farm, just southwest of Dawson Springs, Kentucky, in the Bainbridge/Sinking Fork area of Christian County.  The duration of totality at this location will be 2 minutes and 40 seconds—the longest opportunity to view the eclipse in the entire world.

Offering an extremely close to the peak viewing opportunity of the total solar eclipse experience with 2 minutes, 32 seconds is the city of Dawson Springs, Kentucky and its surrounding Pennyrile Forest and Park Region.

Not only will the eclipse viewing opportunity be next to a peak performance in the Dawson Springs’ area, the amenities and offering for an ultimate family atmosphere, fun and good time will be second to none.  And, our offerings won’t break the bank!
