Total Solar Eclipse to Sweep Across North America

April 2, 2024

When the moon passes squarely in front of the sun, the dazzling surface is obscured and the spectral remnants of the sun's atmosphere are visible.

The exact alignment creates a narrow channel of totality where the eclipse may be observed in its entirety.

The track's approximate width this month will be 71 miles (115 km). A partial eclipse may be observed outside the track, although the amount of the sun that is veiled decreases with distance from the track of totality.

As the sun sets that evening, observers on Scotland's and Ireland's western shores will be able to get a glimpse of the partial solar eclipse.

Mexico will see the complete eclipse between 10.51 MDT and 12.32 CST; the US will see it between 13.27 CDT and 15.35 EDT; and Canada will see it between 15.12 EDT and 17.16 NDT.

A web search for "eclipse track 8 April 2024" will yield information and maps.

On March 29, 2025, there will be a partial solar eclipse that may be seen from London.
