What is a total eclipse?

During a total solar eclipse, the sun is completely obscured by the moon. While such an eclipse will be visible across the continent, only locations in the narrow path of totality will observe a total eclipse at its most spectacular.

On April 8, 2024, at 3:06 PM EDT, a total eclipse will occur—and Indianapolis will be right in the path of totality.

Infographic showing how the path of totality for the 2024 total solar eclipse covers the southern half of Indiana. Indianapolis is close to the centerline, where totality is the longest; totality in Indianapolis will last 3 minutes and 50 seconds, beginning at 3:06 PM EDT on April 8.
