Total Eclipse 2024
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.
