Eclipse Obscuration: Who Sees What and When
What Are We Seeing in Different Parts of Indiana
As we've talked about, different parts of the US (and world) will be seeing different versions of the solar eclipse. Throughout Indiana, all major cities will have the chance to witness as partial solar eclipse. Now, the path of the eclipse spans more across the southern region (think Southern Illinois, Southern Indiana, Mid-Kentucky, etc.).
In different parts of Indiana, the sun will be obscurred by the moon at different proportions. More simply, the moon will appear to cover more or less of the sun depending on what area you're in. For example, in Bloomington, the sun will have an eclipse obscuration of 93.91%- simply, the moon will obscure around 94% of the sun's area. This is the reason we will be seeing more of the sun than if we were to be viewing a total solar eclipse, where 100% of the sun's area will be covered.
