2017 Eclipse Information for North Carolina
The solar eclipse slides across the southwest corner of North Carolina at the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. These mountains may be an appealing venue to watch the eclipse. The reason is that from a high vantage, you'll also have the chance to see the surrounding landscape darken and brighten again as totality races across.
Andrews, North Carolina is on the centerline of the path of totality and will see 2 minutes and 39 seconds. Franklin will enjoy 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Since the portion of North Carolina within totality is small, the Moon's shadow will pass quickly. The total solar eclipse first touches North Carolina at 3:33 p.m. EDT and exits at 3:49 p.m. EDT.
