All Pre-Pro Notes

What makes Kentucky so special is that a spot between the towns of Princeton and Hopkinsville — along Cerulean Hopkinsville Road (Route 624) and just to the east of the intersection with J Stewart Cemetery Road — is where astronomers predict that the point of “greatest eclipse” will occur. That’s where the axis of the moon’s dark shadow cone passes closest to the Earth’s center. Here, totality will last 2 minutes and 40.1 seconds, beginning at 1:24 p.m. CDT.
