The city of McMinnville is located in the State of Tennessee and has roughly 13 thousand inhabitants with approximately 5 thousand households. This city and surrounding county, is known as the “Nursery Capital of the World” due to the large number of companies dedicated to the horticultural business (450 nurseries) making over $300 million USD per year in income. The city commercially connects with the rest of the United States with modern wide highways and by the operation of the Caney Fork and Western Railroad. Settlers from McMinnville moved west and founded a sister city in Oregon, named McMinnville, Oregon.

Witnessing The Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017
Just wow.... This video shows us viewing The Great American Total Solar Eclipse of Monday, August 21, 2017 from around Solartown in Madras, OR! I was here with my cousin & Regina. Based on the location of Madras in the high desert of Central Oregon, the typical weather patterns and unobstructed views here has made the city, identified by many Solar Eclipse experts, as one of the premier viewing locations in the US. Located at the center of the path of totality, Madras was engulfed in roughly just over 2 minutes of darkness. The sun was replaced by a black circle, ringed with white light. Visibly glowing in the darkness was the sun’s corona: a beautiful halo of exceedingly hot gas, normally invisible, now suddenly and beautifully displayed. During totality, the cheering had subsided to an eerie silence. It's crazy that this day, it seemed like life in America was put on hold... the nagging to do list, the deadlines at work, the political debates and divisions. Everything receded, overtaken by this celestial event of the century. Witnessing the total eclipse as day turns into night for a couple minutes was totally surreal! Listening to the crowd slowly cheering louder and louder as totality starts (and ends) was just simply amazing! No words can describe the experience of it all...
This was during our Oregon solar eclipse trip. Of course since we were already up in Oregon, we explored and drove around the state a bit, even visiting Portland, Salem, Woodburn and Eugene in the process. Our trip lasted from August 20-24, 2017. Safe travels, guys!
More of this solar eclipse:
It was the 1st total solar eclipse in a century to cross the continental U.S. from coast to coast. Starting at 10:15 a.m. PDT, the total eclipse made landfall on the coast of Oregon. Then, it had zipped east across America at a whopping 2,100 mph. It traversed a 3,000-mile path, cutting thru Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia & North Carolina, before finally disappearing off the coast of Charleston, S.C. at 2:49 p.m. EDT. The whole thing was over in just 90 minutes... By the way, you may want to save this date: April 8, 2024. That’s the next time parts of the U.S. was to experience another total solar eclipse! Time to reserve a hotel in Texas lol.
Total Solar Eclipse LIVE 2017 - FULL VIDEO (Hopkinsville, Kentucky)
We drove up from Dallas to Hopkinsville, KY to view the Total Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017! We drove around Hopkinsville beforehand, the town was alive! There were lines of people queuing to get a offee from the only store open in town. We drove a few miles out to watch the eclipse from a Flying J in Oak Grove (18750 Herndon Oak Grove Rd, Oak Grove, KY 42262) so we could get ahead of the traffic. It was a weird experience to see almost total darkness in the middle of the day! A great experience! We came prepared and bought eclipse glasses on ebay beforehand, otherwise, you may burn out your retinas LOL.... The traffic afterwards was TERRIBLE! Almost 24 hour gridlock, luckily we were ahead of it, but stopped at the Dukes of Hazzard museum in Nashville and they all caught up with us again! It was bad all the way to Birmingham, AL. I hear Hopkinsville ran out of toilet paper that day LOL!
A solar eclipse occurs when an observer (on Earth) passes through the shadow cast by the Moon which fully or partially blocks (occults) the Sun. This can only happen when the Sun, Moon and Earth are nearly aligned on a straight line in three dimensions (syzygy) during a new moon when the Moon is close to the ecliptic plane. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. In partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured.
If the Moon were in a perfectly circular orbit, a little closer to the Earth, and in the same orbital plane, there would be total solar eclipses every new moon. However, since the Moon's orbit is tilted at more than 5 degrees to the Earth's orbit around the Sun, its shadow usually misses Earth. A solar eclipse can only occur when the moon is close enough to the ecliptic plane during a new moon. Special conditions must occur for the two events to coincide because the Moon's orbit crosses the ecliptic at its orbital nodes twice every draconic month (27.212220 days) while a new moon occurs one every synodic month (29.530587981 days). Solar (and lunar) eclipses therefore happen only during eclipse seasons resulting in at least two, and up to five, solar eclipses each year; no more than two of which can be total eclipses.Total eclipses are rare because the timing of the new moon within the eclipse season needs to be more exact for an alignment between the observer (on Earth) and the centers of the Sun and Moon. In addition, the elliptical orbit of the Moon often takes it far enough away from Earth that its apparent size is not large enough to block the Sun entirely. Total solar eclipses are rare at any particular location because totality exists only along a narrow path on the Earth's surface traced by the Moon's full shadow or umbra.
An eclipse is a natural phenomenon. However, in some ancient and modern cultures, solar eclipses were attributed to supernatural causes or regarded as bad omens. A total solar eclipse can be frightening to people who are unaware of its astronomical explanation, as the Sun seems to disappear during the day and the sky darkens in a matter of minutes.
Since looking directly at the Sun can lead to permanent eye damage or blindness, special eye protection or indirect viewing techniques are used when viewing a solar eclipse. It is technically safe to view only the total phase of a total solar eclipse with the unaided eye and without protection; however, this is a dangerous practice, as most people are not trained to recognize the phases of an eclipse, which can span over two hours while the total phase can only last a maximum of 7.5 minutes for any one location. People referred to as eclipse chasers or umbraphiles will travel to remote locations to observe or witness predicted central solar eclipses.
Hopkinsville is a home rule-class city in and the county seat of Christian County, Kentucky, United States. The population at the 2010 census was 31,577.
