Live Blog: The Great American Solar Eclipse

Aug 21, 2017

The first coast-to-coast solar eclipse in 99 years is today, with the path of totality just a few hours drive south of Indiana in parts of Kentucky.

Nearly the entire state will have at least 90 percent coverage, and southern parts of Indiana will have near-totality: 99 percent in Evansville, 96 percent in Jeffersonville, 95 percent in Bloomington and about 90 percent in Indianapolis.

Throughout the state, the partial eclipse starts at about 12:57 p.m., with peak coverage at 2:25 p.m., and end of partial eclipse at 3:49 p.m (all times Eastern Standard Time).

Reporters from public broadcasting stations throughout the state are covering the state as Hoosiers experience this rare event!
