2024 ECLIPSE IN PADUCAH, KENTUCKY

Total Solar EclipseOn April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will occur in Paducah, Kentucky. Paducah, which was also in the path of the historic 2017 eclipse, barely manages to shoehorn itself into the small area of northwestern Kentucky captured inside the 2024 eclipse path. The city is very close to the eastern edge of the path, receiving only about 1 minute and 31 seconds of totality downtown, even less than what it experienced during the much shorter overall eclipse of 2017. For eclipse chasers who don't mind traveling on eclipse day, you can drive north on Interstate 24 into Illinois to find longer durations of totality closer to the centerline. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Paducah for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
