INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana is lucky to have several cities that will be able to witness an almost total solar eclipse on Monday..

If you're not in the mood to travel down to Evansville for an almost complete eclipse on August 21, this handy map can help you figure out just how much of the sun will be blocked in your city. 

Using NASA data, Larry Koehn put together the map to match up with the timing of the eclipse, and the percentage of total coverage of the sun. Check it out:
