Make your trip more memorable by adding local Indianapolis attractions:

  • Connor Prairie activities and expansive viewing location
  • NASA live broadcast from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
  • One of three NASA broadcast locations in the country
  • “Eclipse Extravaganza” day at the Children’s Museum

  • Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium, one of the largest public observatories in the world

Why should I be in the path of totality?

The most magic occurs in the path of totality! As darkness nears, birds will begin to roost, insects will begin chirping and the sky will take on a strange hue as the Moon’s shadow comes toward you at 2,000 mph. The sky will turn dark, the brighter stars and planets will be in view and the totally eclipsed Sun will appear as a black orb with its beautiful outer corona revealed. You won’t want to miss this chance to view the phenomenon in the path of totality.
