Below is a collection of graphics, pictures and details about the 2017 Eclipse happening in Carbondale Illinois on August the 21st, 2017 and again on April 8th, 2024. Content is provided by Southern Illinois University, Carbondale Tourism and NASA.
A Total Solar Eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon in which the moon passes in between the Sun and Earth unveiling a solar corona as the Moon’s shadow crosses the Earth. This only occurs during the new moon. Carbondale boasts the spot for the longest and clearest duration of the total solar eclipse at 2 minutes and 38 seconds. NASA will be on location filming the eclipse along with thousands of other fans. We hope to see you there.
