It’s a once in a lifetime experience, and there’s no better place to enjoy it than at the Racing Capital of the World! Join the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and NASA on April 8, 2024, for the Total Solar Eclipse that will cross North America.

NASA has accepted our invitation to broadcast live from our facility, and NASA experts will be on-hand to answer questions about the scientific phenomenon that is a total solar eclipse!

When the total solar eclipse crosses North America, Indianapolis will be located in the center of the Path of Totality. For 3 minutes and 46 seconds, Indianapolis will experience darkness as the moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun.

Just after 3 p.m. (ET) on April 8, 2024, when the Path of Totality begins, it will mark the first time in 819 years that a Total Solar Eclipse has been visible from Indianapolis. Another Total Solar Eclipse will not happen in Indianapolis again until the year 2153, 129 years after next year’s occurrence.

IMS will have an exciting day of programming and celebration planned as we partner with NASA as one of just a select few broadcast locations across the country and open our facility to the world for this incredible phenomenon.
