Partial photo voltaic eclipse seen in Evansville in June
The Evansville area saw a fairly large solar eclipse in 2017. We will have another chance to see another solar eclipse this June.
I can remember the hype behind the solar eclipse we had in 2017. Seeing this was a priority. Everyone bought eclipse glasses so they could see them firsthand, including me. While we weren’t exactly on the path of totality, we were pretty close here in Evansville. It was really a sight that I won’t soon forget. However, this won’t be the last solar eclipse we will see in the near future.
Did you know we are going to see a partial solar eclipse here in the Evansville area on June 10th?
This time it won’t be as noticeable as it was a few years ago, but it’s still something you might want to see. It is called an annular solar eclipse. During an annular solar eclipse, the moon appears a little smaller in front of the sun and creates something like a ring of fire. Of course, we won’t be able to see the full annular eclipse around here in the Evansville area. However, we will get a little taste of the solar eclipse.
So on the morning of June 10th, you want to wake up before sunrise and find a place with a clear horizon. In the Evansville area, the eclipse will occur at sunrise. The maximum solar eclipse will be before sunrise, according to GreatAmearicanEcipse.com.

While we may not be on the path of totality for the June solar eclipse, we will get the show of a lifetime in 2024. Mark your calendars for April 8th, 2024 when we are indeed on the path of the totality of a total sun to eclipse. It looks like we can see anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes total time in Evansville which sounds awesome! You can find out more about what to expect in 2024 by clicking here.
