WHEN AND WHERE TO SEE THE APRIL 2024 ECLIPSE

2024 Solar Eclipse

A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between our planet and the sun. As the new moon completes its path, it casts a shadow on certain parts of the Earth as it travels. The moon’s shadow effectively blocks the sun’s rays temporarily with the effect of the sun appearing to be blocked out.

There are four types of solar eclipses: partial, annular, total and hybrid. On April 8, 2024, the earth will experience a total eclipse. The last total solar eclipse that was visible from North America was on August 21, 2017, so you don’t want to miss this one or you’ll have to wait a while until it happens again!

What Makes the 2024 Eclipse Special?

Since 70% of the world is covered by water, the majority of eclipses are unseen by human eyes. It’s rare for people to see an eclipse–and it’s even rarer for people to see a total eclipse in their neighborhoods. The 2024 eclipse is unique because it gives you the chance to see a total eclipse where the moon completely covers the sun.

The Experience of Totality

If you didn’t witness the 2017 total eclipse, get ready for an experience that you’ve never seen before. The light will start to go dark as if the sun is setting early. When the moon fully covers the sun, you can take off your glasses for a few minutes and witness the event firsthand.

The sunlight forms a shimmering halo around the moon, creating an otherworldly effect like a scene from another planet. It’s impossible to understand if you haven’t seen it in person. The experience is so incredible that people travel across the country to see a total eclipse.

Where to See the 2024 Eclipse in North America

The total solar eclipse of 2024 will begin its journey from Mexico, and make its way across northern New York and Vermont, before ending in Canada. Check out this MAP to see the exact path and timing of the eclipse!

Enjoy the Eclipse Safely

The most important thing to keep in mind about the 2024 eclipse is that you need to protect your eyes. Although it may be tempting to squint at the sun directly, don’t do this! The UV rays of the sun will burn your retinas and can cause permanent damage to your vision. Our 106.7 WIZN official ISO-approved and CE-certified solar eclipse glasses are perfect for the big event!
