Total Solar Eclipse - Monday, April 8, 2024
In advance of the total solar eclipse in spring 2024, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) is collaborating with state and national partners to support local schools as we work to ensure the safety of all students, while also maximizing this STEM learning opportunity. This page will be updated as additional information and resources become available.
On Monday, April 8, 2024, the total solar eclipse will take a spectacular journey across North America, beginning on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, traveling across the U.S. from Texas to Maine, and ultimately reaching the Atlantic Coast of Canada. Experts describe the 2024 eclipse, known as the “Great North American Eclipse,” as more spectacular than the historic 2017 eclipse. According to NationalEclipse.com, the 2024 eclipse will cross over or come close to more major cities and with a maximum duration of totality that is almost two minutes longer than in 2017.
