Subject: Sapphire Valley Resort to experience the 2017 Total Eclipse of the Sun!

Sapphire Valley will experience a once in a lifetime event next August 2017 –

a total solar eclipse!

Sapphire Valley Resort is one of the few areas in North Carolina where visitors and residents can experience this extremely rare event* - a total solar eclipse! Sapphire Valley is in the direct path of totality, as it is known, and very close to the center line, or area of longest duration!

 On August 21, 2017, our Day of Totality will start just after 1PM when the moon will start blocking the sun and shadow cast by it will move over Sapphire Valley Resort! Everyone on the Resort will be able to experience this amazing event including over 2 minutes of complete darkness.

At the period of totality, the moon will move fully in front of the sun, casting a shadow across the Resort. The resort area will turn dark, the air will cool, and if planets and stars are in the sky they may be visible! Time tables predict totality with last 2 minutes and 18 seconds – an amazing amount of time to be in dark in the middle of the day!
