As the eclipse traverses North America, Indianapolis finds itself at the center of the Path of Totality. The city will witness a breathtaking 3 minutes and 46 seconds of darkness as the moon moves between the Sun and Earth, entirely obscuring the Sun’s face.

The Path of Totality will commence just after 3 p.m. (ET) on April 8, 2024, marking the first time in 819 years that a Total Solar Eclipse has been visible from Indianapolis. The city won’t experience another such event until 2153, a staggering 129 years later.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has an exhilarating day of programming and festivities planned in collaboration with NASA. As one of a select few broadcast locations across the country, the speedway is thrilled to open its doors to the world for this remarkable phenomenon.
