You are probably aware that a solar eclipse will be visible across the United States on August 21st of this year. That’s the day after Gen Con, and also during Butler University’s Welcome Week for new students. Our Butler University librarians therefore put together a LibGuide about this year’s eclipse and about solar eclipses in general: http://libguides.butler.edu/c.php?g=34069&p=4563879. Vox shared some detailed maps and information from NASA, while Gizmodo highlighted the best places for viewing the eclipse, including the helpful map below.
The view in Indianapolis should be good, but if you want the full totality experience then you will need to drive a few hours’ distance.
