eclipse en Christian County Town Will be Best Place in the World to See Eclipse <p>The Western Kentucky town of Hopkinsville has hit the astronomical jackpot. When a total eclipse of the sun darkens skies Aug. 21, 2017, the show will last longer in a stretch of hilly country near Hopkinsville than any place on the planet. It will last two minutes and 40 seconds, not much longer than the Kentucky Derby. Tue, 04 Sep 2012 12:58:09 +0000 Associated Press 18564 at
