Prepare yourselves for a celestial show! North America will witness its first total solar eclipse since August 21, 2017, on April 8, 2024. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon totally obscures the sun, resulting in a spooky twilight throughout the day.

 

You won't want to miss it if you're fortunate enough to be in the line of totality as this is an uncommon event! You will find all the information you require regarding the 2024 solar eclipse in this post, including:

 

What is a solar eclipse?

When and where is the 2024 solar eclipse happening?

What can you expect to see during the eclipse?

How can you safely view the eclipse?

Where can I find live streams of the eclipse?

What is a Solar Eclipse?

 

When the moon passes in front of the sun and the Earth, a shadow is cast on the planet's surface, known as a solar eclipse. Four primary categories exist for solar eclipses:

 

Total solar eclipse: The moon completely blocks the sun's light, creating a brief period of darkness.

Partial solar eclipse: The moon only partially blocks the sun's light, creating a crescent-shaped shadow on Earth.

Annular solar eclipse: The moon appears smaller than the sun, leaving a ring of sunlight visible around the moon.

Hybrid solar eclipse: A rare type of eclipse that starts as annular and ends as total.

 

When and where is the Solar Eclipse  2024 Happening?

 

The  solar eclipse 2024 will be a total eclipse, visible across parts of North America. The following states will be on the path of totality, which will travel from western Mexico to eastern Canada:

 

Texas

Oklahoma

Arkansas

Missouri

Illinois

Kentucky

Tennessee

Georgia

North Carolina South Carolina

Virginia

Maryland

Pennsylvania

New York

Vermont

New Hampshire

Maine

 

At 9:04 AM PDT in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico, and at 3:51 PM PDT in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Nova Scotia, the eclipse will begin. Depending on where you are, totality may last anywhere from four minutes and twenty-eight seconds to an hour and a half at its longest.

 

Anywhere in North America can witness a partial eclipse, even if you're not in the path of totality. The quantity of sun that is blocked off will change according on where you are.

 

What Can You Expect to See During the Eclipse?

 

The day will drastically darken during totality, and the sun's corona—the outermost layer of its atmosphere—will be visible. Additionally, you might be able to view stars and planets that are typically obscured by the brightness of the sun.

 

There will be a partial eclipse in the minutes before and after totality. There will be a strange tinge to the sunlight and the sun will appear crescent-shaped. Strange behaviors in animals and a reduction in temperature are possible.

 

How Can You Safely View the Eclipse?

 

Even during a solar eclipse, staring straight at the sun is never safe. Even if you do not feel any pain in your eyes, the sun's rays can cause irreversible damage.

 

Using eclipse glasses made specifically for this purpose is the only safe way to see a solar eclipse. You may safely view the eclipse thanks to the filters in these glasses that filter out the majority of the sun's brightness.

 

Here are some additional safety tips for viewing the eclipse:

 

Never look through a telescope or binoculars without a proper solar filter.

Do not use sunglasses, even very dark ones. They are not safe for viewing the eclipse.

If you are making your own eclipse viewer, be sure to follow instructions carefully.

 

Where Can I Find Live Streams of the Eclipse?

 

You can view the eclipse online even if you're not in the path of totality or if you don't have eclipse glasses. NASA and Space will be among the numerous media organizations offering live streaming of the eclipse.
