On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will experience an eclipse of the Sun.
Louisville will experience a partial solar eclipse, with the moon covering approximately 90 percent of the sun.
Eclipse Timeline in Louisville:
Begins at 12:59pm
Maximum Height at 2:27pm
Ends at 3:51pm.
If you want to see the Sun completely eclipsed by the Moon, you’ll have to visit the Path of Totality, which passes along southern Kentucky. If you can’t make the trip, Louisville is going to have an incredible view and Downtown is the place to experience it.
Need eclipse glasses? All Heine Bros. locations have certified viewing glasses for a $1.00 donation to the Science Center (while supplies last).
