Comet TV Solar Eclipse Prize Pack Giveaway…
The Moon Is Throwing Shade!

This month… The Moon Throws Shade! Yep, it’s the Solar Eclipse! On Monday, August 21, 2017, a solar eclipse will be visible across all of North America. The whole continent will experience a partial eclipse lasting 2 to 3 hours. If you care about the well-being of Earth and you’re a space-head like us, check out COMET’s Ultimate Guide to Eclipsing, “When The Moon Throws Shade”.

Plus, to help celebrate, Comet TV has also provided us with a cool “When The Moon Throws Shade” prize pack to give away to one lucky reader…


Airing on COMET in August 2017:

  • An American Werewolf in London (1981)
      One of the greatest horror films of all time is headed to COMET! Check out John Landis’ often imitated but never duplicated 1981 classic, An American Werewolf in London, and discover why it’s always a good idea to “stay off the moors.” The film airs on COMET on August 18 at 8P/7C, and again the following night at the same time.

      Friday, August 18 at 8P/7C
      Saturday, August 19 at 8P/7C
      and Sunday, August 27 at 4P/3C

  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers
      Most of the time, we’re not big fans of remakes. But once in a while, a remake comes along that vastly outshines its inspiration. Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the 1978 reboot of the 1956 sci-fi thriller, is one of those remakes. Not only that, it’s maybe the best remake ever made, and with stars like Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, and Leonard Nimoy, it’s not hard to see why. The invasion begins on August 25 at 8P/7C, with an encore airing at 8P/7C on August 26.

      Friday, August 25 at 8P/7C
      Saturday, August 26 at 8P/7C

      We are going to the Columbia Zoo. The animals should be interesting to watch how there reaction to the eclipse. P.s. I love American warewolf in London so much.!

    • beth

    • Sandy Klocinski

      I’ll be heading down to a spot between the towns of Princeton and Hopkinsville KY — along Cerulean
      Hopkinsville Road (Route 624) and just to the east of the intersection
      with J Stewart Cemetery Road — where astronomers predict that the
      point of “greatest eclipse” will occur. That’s where the axis of the
      moon’s dark shadow cone passes closest to the Earth’s center. The hotel is already booked, the glasses (not that I’ll be wearing them all the time) already ordered! It’s gonna be great!
