Nashville, TN – If you can’t find your way into the path of totality for the August 21st, 2107 total solar eclipse, don’t worry. There’s enough darkness to go around.
Although a total eclipse will be visible across a mere 70 mile swath through Tennessee, the rest of the state will still be treated to a minimum 90 percent eclipse experience. Any open area is a great place to enjoy the event, and many of Tennessee’s farms and all of Tennessee’s wineries are ready to share their space with spectators who want to celebrate the phenomenon.

Clarksville, TN – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind citizens of job related scams. A job related check cashing scam has recently been reported to the Sheriff’s Office by a local citizen.
Check cashing scams frequently begin with an email correspondence offering a job. Checks, money orders or wire deposits will be sent to the victim for “processing” or to pay for job related expenses.
The victim will be asked to cash the check or money order and send a percentage of the funds back to the scammers. Once the funds are sent back to the scammers the victim’s bank or financial institution learns that the check/money order/wire transfer was fraudulent. The funds are then subtracted from the victim’s account and they are made liable for the lost money.

Pasadena, CA – Scientists have discovered the strongest evidence to date for a stratosphere on a planet outside our solar system, or exoplanet. A stratosphere is a layer of atmosphere in which temperature increases with higher altitudes.
“This result is exciting because it shows that a common trait of most of the atmospheres in our solar system — a warm stratosphere — also can be found in exoplanet atmospheres,” said Mark Marley, study co-author based at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley. “We can now compare processes in exoplanet atmospheres with the same processes that happen under different sets of conditions in our own solar system.”
