NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) In case you haven’t heard, the first total solar eclipse to track coast-to-coast across the entire US in almost a century is happening Monday, August 21, 2017! While the general hype has been building for weeks now, some astronomy buffs have been anticipating this event for years, even decades. In fact, that kind of foresight isn't just limited to the scientific community: many farmers and rural communities have been preparing for years to welcome a huge influx of solar eclipse watchers, which could potentially give the populations of some small towns a temporary, one-day boost up into the millions! This possibility has commissioners, planners, service providers, and other authorities in many rural communities within the “totality zone” both excited and anxious.

RFD-TV’s own meteorologist, Tim Ross, has created a short video in which he as presents the basic facts associated with this spectacular event. This, along with other related videos, is viewable directly above.
