SENECA – The Spartanburg Photo Guild will have an eclipse photo exhibit on display at Duke Energy’s World of Energy education center at Oconee Nuclear Station from Oct. 9 through Oct. 30.

This free exhibit features eclipse images caught on camera by Guild members at the World of Energy during the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21, 2017. Images range from the initial moon shadowing of the sun to the “diamond ring” effect to the awe-inspiring sun’s corona.

“We were very pleased to work with the Spartanburg Photo Guild to accommodate their photography,” World of Energy Manager Chris Rimel said. “After they had scouted out the Upstate and found the World of Energy was the perfect spot in the center of totality, the only question was good weather. And we had it. The photographs are amazing.”

Many of the Spartanburg Photo Guild images on display are for sale. Information cards will be available with each display.

The exhibit is open to the public during the World of Energy’s normal business hours, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Whether you’re looking to fill an hour or an entire afternoon, Duke Energy’s World of Energy at Oconee Nuclear Station has plenty to keep you educated and enlightened.

Many guests enjoy starting with the educational exhibits located inside our education center. From there, you can tour our butterfly garden or take a walk along our nature trail.

Picnic shelters, located along the beautiful shores of Lake Keowee, are available for those who want to end their visit with an outdoor lunch.

The oldest continually operating nuclear education center in the world, the World of Energy hosts events throughout the year, including concerts, outdoor movies, guest speakers, community forums and much more.
