A Solar Eclipse is when the moon moves between the sun and Earth. The moon then blocks the light of the sun from reaching earth.
After the August 21, 2017 eclipse, the next total solar eclipse visible from North America will be April 8, 2024.
Total solar eclipses take place about once every 18 months.
There are two primary types of eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse and Solar Eclipse.
Even though Indiana isn't in the path of totality, a partial shadow will be visible.
Looking at a solar eclipse could permanently damage your eyes. Meaning there is nothing you could do if you were to go blind while looking at the eclipse.
To safely view an eclipse safely, be sure to wear tested eclipse glasses or handheld solar viewers.

There is a possibility that during the eclipse, cellphones might blackout. I chose this link because I found it interesting that our cellphones could possibly blackout.
It's not uncommon for solar storms to pummel to Earth. The sun can spit off several solar flares in a day each one releasing 10 million times the energy of a typical volcanic eruption, If they were to hit earth, that would pose a threat to astronauts aboard the space station and power grids below. I picked this link because I was surprised that the sun sends solar flares down to earth everyday. I thought that was cool.
