Metro Canada (Calgary) - - SPECIAL REPORT: MORTGAGES -

Hun­ker down in the cow­boy state’s sec­ond largest city to watch the sun’s corona glow peep around the dark of the moon. The Astro­nom­ica League is hold­ing its an­nual na­tional con­ven­tion, Astro­con 2017, over the week­end at the Park­way Plaza ho­tel. That means lec­tures and work­shops aimed at the tele­scope tot­ing set, but also a Star-B Q. With a big open fron­tier coun­try sky, there will be un­ob­structed views aplenty so any back­yard or porch will do just ine. To­tal­ity be­ings 11:42 a.m. 2 min­utes and 26 sec­onds 4. NASHVILLE TEN­NESSEE Sure, you could catch an ex­tra twenty sec­onds of ce­les­tial day-dark­ness twang in Clarksville, Tenn., but is a few ticks more worth pass­ing up on a week­end in Mu­sic City? Get ready to go dark by hit­ting up the honky-tonks where coun­try cov­ers of Bon­nie Tyler’s To­tal Eclipse of the Heart are sure to be re­quested and belly up for some Hat­tie B’s hot chicken. The Nashville Zoo o ers a great sight­line plus owls, bats and other noc­tur­nal an­i­mals tend to hoot it up dur­ing these events, adding to the spec­ta­cle. To­tal­ity be­gins at 1:27 p.m. CDT 1 minute and 57 sec­onds 5. COLUMBIA SOUTH CAROLINA Set the mood for the spooky cos­mic shadow dance on Sun­day af­ter­noon with Star Wars Mu­si­clipse, a per­for­mance by the South Carolina Phil­har­monic — Mori­hiko Naka­hara may just ditch his con­duc­tor’s ba­ton for a light saber. A walk in Con­ga­ree Na­tional Park, to spy the alien­look­ing “tree’s knees” should also be in or­der. The South Carolina State Mu­seum will be eclipse-tail­gat­ing cen­tral all week­end long with themed ex­hibits and plan­e­tar­ium shows. For the big event City Roots, an ur­ban farm, is host­ing a low coun­try boil & paella party from noon to 4 p.m. with live mu­sic. To­tal­ity be­gins at 2:43 p.m. EDT 2 min­utes and 36 sec­onds

UFOl­o­gists will be out in full force hop­ing to wit­ness the re­turn of the me­tal­lic lit­tle green men though they’d eas­ily pass for hip­ster cos­play­ers at Eclipse Con, a comic con­ven­tion be­ing held here on the week­end.
