A Total Eclipse of the Sun

On April 8, 2024, at 3:05 pm, a total solar eclipse will be completely visible throughout the continental United States. The sun, moon, and earth will align. This "syzygy*" will put the sky into epic and unforgettable temporary darkness. Though the following solar eclipse will occur in the year 2044, Indianapolis will not be within the path of totality until the year 2153 - 129 years after 2024. So buckle up and plan your eclipse-viewing in Indy. The April 8 eclipse is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to see a total solar eclipse appear over the Circle City.
