2017 Solar Eclipse: Be at the center of the point of greatest eclipse at the Murray State University (MSU) campus in Hopkinsville, Kentucky!
Murray State University will host passenger vehicles on Monday, August 21, from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Hopkinsville campus for the 2017 Solar Eclipse. Participants can purchase a paved parking lot space in the lot off of MSU Drive to the northwest of the Murray State Hopkinsville campus and east of the Breathitt Veterinary Center. Spaces are sold by the vehicle–load so the number of visitors per vehicle does not impact price. Only four-wheel passenger vehicles will be permitted.
