November 6, 2017

The Aug. 21 total solar eclipse was a great success, drawing visitors, scientists and attention to the county, according to a new release from the Transylvania County Tourism Development Authority (TDA).

“We were very pleased with both the turnout and the media coverage we received for the eclipse,” said Lori Roberts, the TDA board chairwoman.

Transylvania County was one of the few counties in North Carolina that was in the “zone of totality” for the eclipse.

This narrow path, about 90 miles wide, was the only location where viewers could experience a 100 percent eclipse.
