Where will your eclipse experience be? Turn around and come watch with us and experience this once in a lifetime phenomenon! At 2:41 p.m. on Monday, August 21, 2017, viewers who have gathered in the Greater Columbia, SC, area will experience the longest period of 100% total eclipse for a metro area on the entire East Coast of the United States — ranging from 2 minutes and 30 seconds to 2 minutes and 36 seconds of total darkness.

Experts estimate that this total solar eclipse will be the most watched eclipse in the history of the world as we know it. Only those in the “path of totality” will have the extremely rare, awe-inspiring experience of witnessing a 100% total eclipse. For more information, call Felicia Venable at (803) 741-7272 ext. 141.
