Most people don't remember what they were specifically doing two years ago. But I bet if we told you the total solar eclipse happened two years ago today (Wednesday, August 21st), you'll remember exactly what you were doing.

Rutherford County Schools decided to close schools down. MTSU transformed into a big watch party site. At 1:29pm local time, totality started here in Rutherford County two years ago.

It was an event not seen here since July 29th, 1478. That is, a total solar eclipse.

By the way, it was estimated that American businesses lost nearly 700-million dollars in productivity that day due to all those outside watching.

By the way, the next total solar eclipse visible from North America will be April 8, 2024. However, Rutherford County and Middle Tennessee will not be in the totality path.

VIEW THE STORY FROM AUGUST 21, 2017
