First Total Eclipse Since 2017

First Total Eclipse Since 2017
April 8, 2024

Today is the first total eclipse visible in the U.S. since 2017, and the last one seen here until 2044.

The path of totality, where the sun is completely covered by the moon, will begin crossing the U.S. at around 2:30 PM eastern time, and will finish about an hour later.

If you’re in the path for a few minutes you’ll see the moon completely block out the sun’s light, while the air gets colder.

Totality will occur in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.
