Solar Eclipse Events In and South of Indianapolis



Indianapolis and the southern suburbs will be apart of a a total solar eclipse. On Monday April 8th, 2024. The sky will go dark for a few minutes in the afternoon as the moon passes between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun completely, which means we are in the line of “totality.” 


You need to be wearing appropriate eye protection (special eclipse glasses) in order to view this anomaly safely. Watching the eclipse with the naked eye will result in eye damage, including pets!
