Total Solar Eclipse: Valley Viewing

How many remember the last time you were able to witness the Total Solar Eclipse? One thing is for sure, if you saw the last Total Solar Eclipse in Georgia, you were 47 years younger than you are today! The last Total Solar Eclipse to pass through our state was on March 7, 1970. The next big evening is just weeks away! We are busy here at Georgia Mountain Rentals, planning and organizing our Valley Viewing of the Total Solar Eclipse passing through the Northeastern corner of Georgia, including Helen and Sautee Nacoochee on Monday, August 21, 2017.
