Arend family visits ‘Eclipseville,’ Kentucky

On Monday, August 21, a Perrysburg family took an out-of-state trip to maximize their opportunity to see a total solar eclipse.
 
The Arend family traveled to Hopkinsville, Kentucky for 2 minutes and 40 seconds of eclipse totality.
 
Dubbed “Eclipseville” for having the longest time when the sun was completely blocked by the moon, the southwestern Kentucky town estimated that their population of about 31,000 people more than tripled for the day.
