Total Solar Eclipse , US, Monday, 08. April 2024

A total solar eclipse will take place on Monday, April 8, 2024, visible across North America. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide. With a magnitude of 1.0566, its longest duration of totality will be of four minutes and twenty-eight seconds near the town of Nazas, Durango, Mexico, and the nearby city of Torreón, Coahuila.

In the United States, totality will be visible through the states of Texas (including parts of San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth),Oklahoma, Arkansas (including Little Rock), Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana (including Indianapolis), a very small area of Michigan, Ohio (including Toledo and Cleveland), Pennsylvania (including Erie), Upstate New York (including Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, the Adirondacks, Potsdam, and Plattsburgh), and northern Vermont (including Burlington), New Hampshire, and Maine with the line of totality going almost directly over the state's highest point Mount Katahdin.

In Canada, the path of totality will pass over parts of southern Ontario (including Hamilton, Niagara Falls, Kingston, and Cornwall), parts of southern Québec (including Montréal and Sherbrooke), central New Brunswick (including Fredericton and Miramichi), western Prince Edward Island (including Tignish and Summerside), and central Newfoundland Island (including Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor). Then it will vanish at the eastern Atlantic Coast of Newfoundland.
