Witness the Spectacular Total Solar Eclipse of April 8, 2024
On April 8, 2024, the skies will stage a breathtaking show: a total solar eclipse tracing a path across the South Pacific Ocean into North America. This celestial event will first cast its shadow over Mexico's Pacific coast at approximately 11:07 a.m. PDT, marking the beginning of an awe-inspiring journey across the continent.
The eclipse's path will sweep across North America, touching down in the United States from Texas and weaving through states including Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Its voyage continues into Canada, passing through Southern Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia, before making its grand exit off Newfoundland's Atlantic coast at 5:16 p.m. NDT.
This event is a rare opportunity, as the next total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States won't occur until August 23, 2044. The totality phase, when the Moon entirely obscures the Sun, offers a fleeting moment to safely observe the Sun's corona without eye protection. However, viewing the Sun's bright face at any other time requires special solar viewing glasses to prevent severe eye damage.
