Best Place in Georgia to See the Solar Eclipse?

By now most already know about the Solar Eclipse that will occur on August 21st, right?  Well, did you know that Blairsville, GA specifically on top of  Brasstown Bald Mountain, is the very best place to see this incredible lunar event in it’s totality? So now ya know! Because Brasstown is the highest point in Georgia which makes it an outstanding location to see the eclipse.  The eclipse begins at 1:05 & the total eclipse begins at 2:34 lasting almost 2 minutes.  A total solar eclipse will sweep over the nation from Oregon to South Carolina. For a few short minutes, the regions along the eclipse path will witness totality; a phenomenal experience in which the moon’s shadow temporarily blocks out the sun, making it appear like twilight in the middle of the day—planets, stars, and all. Sounds really cool-huh?  There will be glasses and tee shirts and everything under the sun so you can have some memorabilia to keep.

According to our friends at, there are several places in North Georgia where you can see this lunar phenomenon and then there’s the best place… Blairsville, GA. Full Article HERE. There is truly a lot happening during that time so if I were you, I’d mark my calendar & reserve a place to stay.

There are so many viewing parties in the area for visitors and locals to experience the eclipse. Here’s 3 of the public places, that the Chamber sponsors on August 21st:

Meeks Moon Party: 11 am – 4 pm at Meeks Park
Viewing at the IP: 11 am – 4 pm at the Blairsville Industrial Park
Totality Tailgate: 11 am – 4 pm at the Union County Schools Fine

Also, NASA Astronaut and International Space Station Commander, Astronomer David Hearn will be in Blairsville speaking about the Solar Eclipse on Sunday, August 20, 2017 – at North Georgia Technical College in Blairsville from 3pm-4pm – $3 Adults & $1 Students.
