Total Solar Eclipse

A map of the where the total eclipse in April of 2024 will be seen.

On Monday, April 8, 2024 the Sun, Moon, and Earth will align perfectly together to produce a total solar eclipse. This eclipse will create a path of darkness stretching from the Pacific coast of Mexico to the Atlantic coast of Canada. It will be the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States until 2044. The 2024 Total Solar eclipse will also last twice as long as the 2017 total eclipse, for an incredible 4 minutes and 27 seconds! To celebrate, we’re hosting in-person and virtual viewing events in key areas across the path of totality.

A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. People viewing the eclipse from locations where the Moon’s shadow completely covers the Sun – known as the path of totality – will experience a total solar eclipse. The sky will darken, as if it were dawn or dusk. Weather permitting, people along the path of totality will see the Sun’s corona, or outer atmosphere, which is usually obscured by the bright face of the Sun.

In North America, the total solar eclipse will begin on the Pacific coast of Mazatlán, Mexico at around 11:07 a.m. PDT and end on the Atlantic coast of Newfoundland, Canada, at 5:16 p.m. NDT. Our viewing events will provide an opportunity for attendees to witness this celestial phenomenon. For more information about our in-person event, please continue reading below
