Solar Eclipse

April 8 All day

A total eclipse of the sun is without a doubt, the greatest cosmic pageant that can be witnessed. The sight of the sun in totality may last 4 minutes 28 seconds in parts of Mexico and will average just over four minutes in its sweep across the southern and eastern United States.

The sky will be greatly darkened for those just outside the totality path (such as St. Louis and Cincinnati), but the brilliant cosmic performance will not be visible to them. To experience a more spectacular effect, Dayton, Indianapolis, Columbus all lie in the path where the effect is the greatest. Even Hamilton, which lies just on the edge of the path with the greatest impact might be an option.
