The Total Eclipse of April 8, 2024

Another total solar eclipse is coming to North America! This time, totality will also pass over Mexico and Canada – giving people all over North America another chance to experience this great celestial event.

In order to see totality, you have to be in the path of totality. If you aren’t in that path, you’ll only see a partial eclipse. You can learn more about those details with our simple eclipse viewing instructions guide.

This blog post will tell you about the 2024 eclipse as seen from the Indianapolis area in Indiana. Please check out all the links we’ve provided below to learn more about the 2024 total solar eclipse from other locations.

The Total Eclipse of April 8, 2024 in Indianapolis

Indianapolis is perfectly placed to see totality! Though not right on the centerline, the downtown area will still get a very respectable 3m45s of totality!

The eclipse happens at different times in different locations. Use the slider on the maps above to show you when totality will happen as the eclipse passes through the Indianapolis area.

Where can I see the total eclipse?

Because of Indianapolis’ location in the path, and the size of the metro area, it’s very important to understand that the farther south you go, the more totality you’ll see. So for example, Zionsville gets 3m20s of totality. Speedway gets about 3m40s, and Beech Grove gets almost four minutes!

You almost can’t go wrong anywhere you choose in Central Indiana. All the suburbs in the doughnut counties are good, though Lebanon only gets a bit more than two and a half minutes in the shadow. From Anderson to Greencastle, Noblesville, Carmel, Muncie, Avon and Plainfield, every major area is perfectly placed to see totality!

Closer to the centerline, Greenfield will see just under four minutes of totality – as will New Palestine, Shelbyville, Greenwood and Martinsville.

To get the absolute most totality possible, you’ll need to be at the centerline of the path. That centerline in the area passes from Vincennes through Bloomfield, to Bloomington and Franklin, then on to Morristown, Knightstown, New Castle and Winchester. These cities all get almost four minutes of totality or more!



What will I see on eclipse day?

Because Central Indiana is so well situated, you almost can’t go wrong anywhere you choose. In other parts of Indiana, you’ll want to be north of a line from Santa Claus through Scottsburg, to Lawrenceburg. Seymour, Bedford, Washington, Jasper, Greensburg, Terre Haute and Brookville are very well-placed to get more than three minutes of totality!

Lafayette and Purdue University are unfortunately not in the path. Neither are South Bend or Notre Dame.

Crawfordsville, Frankfort and Kokomo are right on the northern edge! You can read our blog posts for Ft. Wayne, Evansville, Crawfordsville, Frankfort and Kokomo to get more info on viewing possibilities in those regions.

Order eclipse glasses! Remember that even if you are in the path of totality, if the Sun is not COMPLETELY eclipsed you MUST always use ISO-certified eye protection to watch the eclipse. You MUST use your eclipse glasses to observe all the partial phases.

Order eclipse glasses!

When will the eclipse happen?

Eclipse day is April 8, 2024
Eclipse day is April 8, 2024!

Indianapolis is an excellent place to see totality!

The big event happens just after 3:06pm EDT, and people in the downtown area will see about 3m 45s of totality.

The eclipse happens at different times in different locations. Use the slider on the maps above to show you when totality will happen as the eclipse passes through the Indianapolis area.

Use ISO-certified eye protection during the partial phases

ISO Certification

ISO Certification Always remember the rule for using eye protection during an eclipse: If there’s ANY bright part of the Sun showing, then you have to use your eclipse glasses to watch the event.

ISO Certification That means if you can see anything at all of the Sun through the glasses, then the Sun is too bright and you have to leave the glasses on! If you can see absolutely NO piece of the Sun through the eclipse glasses, then it’s safe to take them off. But the second any bright part of the Sun becomes visible again, you have to put them back on – and this can be mere seconds after you took them off.


We also have an entire section of the site dedicated to providing much more detailed eclipse viewing instructions for you!


Wherever you decide to view from, be sure to plan your route carefully, and watch the weather to make sure you’ll have good skies on eclipse day.
