Totally Eclipsed!

Presented July 21 at 7 p.m. & 8 p.m. and July 28 at 7 p.m. & 8 p.m.

Get ready for Monday, August 21, 2017, when the Moon’s shadow will sweep across the nation, treating Young Harris to the sight of a lifetime: a rare and spectacular total solar eclipse. Young Harris is very well positioned for the event, lying completely within the narrow path of totality. Here at YHC, there’s an expected duration of two minutes and 20 seconds of totality, when the Moon will completely cover the sun and we will witness the amazing sight of day turning to night in the middle of the afternoon! Be prepared for this once-in-a-lifetime celestial event by viewing this all-new planetarium show, which will explain what happens to produce a total solar eclipse, including a preview of what you can expect to see, as well as important safety tips for viewing the eclipse.
