2024 ECLIPSE IN HENDERSON, KENTUCKY

Total Solar EclipseOn April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will occur in Henderson, Kentucky. Located along the northwestern edge of the state, Henderson is inside the small area of Kentucky that manages to get captured by the eclipse path. Located fairly close to the edge of the path, downtown Henderson will get about 2 minutes and 30 seconds of totality, just a little more than half of the maximum duration possible in the U.S. for this eclipse. If you don't mind traveling on eclipse day, you can find longer durations by hopping over the Ohio River and taking Interstate 69 to Interstate 64, which meets up with the centerline to the west. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Henderson for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
