Partial Solar Eclipse On Sunday For IndianaMay 18th, 2012 at 4:47 am by Pamela Gardner under Weather
On Sunday evening a solar eclipse can be seen in Indiana at 7:54 pm. The eclipse will only be partial for us, however, since the path of the annual solar eclipse is over the western United States. The entire east coast will miss the eclipse since the sun will set before it occurs.
In East Asia, the Pacific region, and in the western U.S. they will see the “ring of fire” at the peak…the eclipse will block about 94% of the sun’s light.
A solar eclipse is when the moon blocks out most of the sun but leaves a ring of light visible around its circumference.
*Never look directly at the solar eclipse. There are special filters that are made to observe these events. The safest and simplest way to view a solar eclipse is indirectly with a projection method.
