Solar eclipse chasers focus on small Ky. town
HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. – This southwestern Kentucky town has hit the astronomical jackpot.
When a total eclipse of the sun darkens skies Aug. 21, 2017, the show will last longer in a stretch of bucolic hill country near Hopkinsville than any place on the planet. It will last two minutes and 40 seconds, not much longer than the Kentucky Derby.
But already this town of 32,000 near the Tennessee border is making preparations to cash in on the fortuitous celestial alignment. And like the Derby, run three hours away in Louisville, the eclipse itself will be a blip in time compared to the buildup.
