In case you didn’t see the total eclipse in most of the WSLM Listening area earlier this week, you’ll have a good chance in seven years. 

On April 8, 2024, the moon will cross in front of the sun in the Kentuckiana area and give Hoosiers a taste of a total eclipse. 

Bloomington is right along the sweet spot and will experience more darkness than most everyone else around with 4 minutes 2.5 seconds of “Totality.”

First contact between the moon’s shadow and the sun is calculated to begin at 1:49p and totality is expected to occur at 4:22p. 

Salem will experience only 2 minutes and 3.7 seconds of total darkness, beginning at 1:48p and totality occurring at 4:22p. 

Those in Fredericksburg and New Pekin will have to watch closely. Fredericksburg will only get 59 seconds and New Pekin will get just over 30 seconds of total darkness. 

Those areas to the south like Palmyra, Corydon, Clarksville, Jeffersonville and New Albany will only get to see 99 percent of the eclipse – with a sliver of sunlight showing. 

Those in Louisville will experience a little more than they did this week – getting 98 percent coverage, compared to 94 percent coverage this week.
