‘Total Solar Eclipse Viewing Party at Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School’
Monday, August 21st – 11:00am – 4:00pm
Were you here with us in the Path of Totality for the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse? If so, the only place in Georgia to do that was Rabun County, Georgia. Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School graciously provided the perfect location for the viewing of this spectacular and for most of us a once in a lifetime event.
During this viewing party there was music, food, and screens set up across the viewing area to watch as a NASA feed shown with experts walking us through what happened as the eclipse touched each state beginning on the west coast and came across before it left on the east coast.
Also, the GSU Astronomy Department co-sponsored the event and professors were there with solar telescopes and with eclipse-related displays and presentations. What a great way for both kids and adults alike to experience this once in a lifetime event.
You did not want to be anywhere else for this event.
Cedar Hill was the feature band for this spectacular event. Cedar Hill is Atlanta’s most entertaining bluegrass band. This group of professional musicians features four lead vocalists, tight three and four part harmony, and skillful picking on the banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro and electric bass. But, it is their versatility, their “out of the box” creativity, and their timely use of humor and comedy that sets Cedar Hill apart from other bands. Cedar Hill performances display unique arrangements of bluegrass standards, and popular songs from other genres of music, with a few surprise twists and turns. When you go to a Cedar Hill performance, expect to be entertained, but also expect the unexpected. Below is a sample of just one of their sounds.
