2024 Solar Eclipse
Viewing the Eclipse
On April 8, 2024, a total eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States and Canada. Indiana will be one of only 15 states to experience this breathtaking natural phenomenon and Gibson County is fortunate to be in the Path of Totality!
What is a total Solar Eclipse?
A solar eclipse happens at the exact moment the Moon aligns between the Sun and the Earth, blocking the Sun from Earth. During this period, which lasts only minutes, partial or total darkness will occur, depending on where on Earth you are located.
Viewers located in Gibson County will experience a total eclipse, which means complete darkness will occur when the Moon aligns perfectly and completely between the Sun and Earth.
Hosting an Event
In an effort to encourage a wide range of activities for those experiencing the eclipse in Gibson County, the Gibson County Visitors & Tourism Bureau has established a grant program for Gibson County entities who wish to create an event focused around the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse.Reimbursement Grant Program
