The Solar Eclipse takes place on Monday, August 21, 2017. Cashiers is in the path of totality and will witness the Moon pass completely in front of the Sun whose corona will shimmer in the darkened sky.

This rare celestial event will be seen across the country from Oregon to South Carolina. Cashiers will witness the phenomenon and at approximately 2:30 p.m. and experience complete darkness for about 2 and 1/2 minutes, one of the longest periods in the nation.
