ALBANY, GA (WALB) - For some people in southwest Georgia, this won't be the first time they've witnessed a solar eclipse.
The last total solar eclipse to pass over the continental U.S. was in 1979, according to NASA. That was only a partial view in Georgia.
On March 7, 1970, a total solar eclipse passed over Georgia. Valdosta was in the path of totality during that event.
WALB News Ten's Desirae Duncan reached out to people on Facebook to see what they remember about that day. Here are some of the answers she received:
