About The Eclipse

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse path will stretch across the entire United States, reaching its point of greatest duration (GD) a few miles south Carbondale, IL. This region in southern Illinois is not only in the path of the 2017 eclipse, but also the 2024 eclipse, making it a unique location for being able to perform observations of both eclipses from the same location.On the main SIU Carbondale campus, totality will happen around 1:21 p.m. CDT. The partial phases of the eclipse start at 11:52 a.m., and end at 2:47 p.m.The second total solar eclipse is coming up on April 8, 2024. The two eclipse paths form an intersection just south of the SIU campus around Cedar Lake.
