Hopkinsville, Kentucky will be the center of the world's attention this Monday. That's because its the best place in the world to observe the lunar eclipse where we'll have total darkness in the middle of the day for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. The eclipse will begin at 11:56am and the total eclipse will begin at 1:24pm. It's estimated that hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world will converge in Hopkinsville to see this phenomenon—something that hasn't happened since 1918. The Psalmist says "the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork." We'll see a bit of that glory on display this Monday, but as people experience this rare celestial event may they be drawn to the One who orchestrated all of this in the first place.
