Solar Eclipse

Partial solar eclipse to be seen from Mt. Oglethorpe on August 21st

Eagle’s Rest Park, Mt Oglethorpe, GA…While the path of the solar eclipse is substantially north of Eagle’s Rest Park on Mt. Oglethorpe, according to the Pickens County Progress, there is a chance to experience a partial eclipse in Pickens County. “While only Rabun and Stephens counties in the northeast corner of the state will experience the center-line of totality, Pickens County will experience 97% coverage.”

On Monday, August 21, the solar eclipse will begin at approximately 1:05 p.m. and end between 3:30 p.m and 4 p.m.

Big Canoe Security will open the gate at the top of Sanderlin Mountain from noon to 4 p.m.

Even when experiencing a partial eclipse, you should wear special glasses for viewing the sun. You may wish to Google “glasses to watch the solar eclipse” and order over the Internet. ACE Hardware at Foothills is sold out, but has ordered more for the eclipse…delivery is expected August 7. The major point is…protect your eyes.

Reminder…the September 23 event on Mt. Oglethorpe will feature Theresa Hartz speaking about birding in the area and bird migration.

For the September event the public is encouraged to bring canned goods for CARES of Pickens County to distribute to the needy of Pickens County. You can drop off your donation near the park’s kiosk.

Come to the mountain to renew your mind, body and spirit.

Please support the Mt. Oglethorpe Foundation’s effort to create and maintain Eagle’s Rest Park for the public’s enjoyment. Go to www.mtoglethorpe.org to donate.
