The National Park Service in collaboration with NASA, the National Institute of
Aerospace, and Southwest Community College is hosting a staged event to celebrate the 2017 total solar eclipse as it passes over Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The 4-hour broadcast will explain the science and physics of the eclipse, offer musical sounds of Southern Appalachia, and help viewers create their own stories about this once in a lifetime experience. Join NASA 360 on August 21 as we witness the ecliptic shadow across this majestic landscape from one of the highest points on the east coast.
