Astronomical event will plunge Evansville into darkness

An Evansville group will gather this Friday, two years to the day before a total solar eclipse in the Tri-State. WNIN’s John Gibson has more:

The group began meeting three years ago, in hopes of making Evansville an “eclipse destination.”

Evansville Museum Science Director Mitch Luman says unlike the 2017 eclipse, the 2024 event will put Evansville into total darkness for nearly three minutes.

Parts of western Kentucky were in the totality zone in 2017, while Evansville skies only dimmed.

The meeting is planned for 10:00 Friday morning at Central Library in Downtown Evansville.

The moon will block the sun April 8th, 2024, in what’s been dubbed the Great North American Eclipse.
