People around the world have been looking up at the sky following strikes and near-misses by asteroids and meteors in recent days, but they’ll be looking up for a completely different reason in four years.
Thousands are expected to descend upon Christian County as the ideal viewing spot for the total solar eclipse on August 21st, 2017. A public informational meeting will be held February 26th at 6:30pm at the Harper House regarding the event.
Hopkinsville-Christian County Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Cheryl Cook says she hopes property owners from the Princeton Road area will show up—as their land will be prime viewing territory.
Ms. Cook says some local hotels are already being booked for the eclipse and she hopes everyone involved in the community will make themselves prepared for the influx of tourists.
Once again, the meeting will be in the upstairs of the Harper House February 26th at 6:30pm.
