Total Solar Eclipse - April 8, 2024

There will be a total solar eclipse across parts of the United States on April 4, 2024. It will extend from Mexico, entering the U.S. through Texas and continue diagonally across the United States before entering eastern Canada. Like the 2017 total solar eclipse, the 2024 event will be on a Monday so start planning now for a long weekend. Post any related information on this thread to share information with others who may want to enjoy this unusual event. Many of us experienced the 2017 eclipse, and almost everyone else heard about how fabulous that experience was, so the 2024 event is sure to be a well-attended.

Post information on this thread about where you plan to be and other useful information about the 2024 total solar eclipse.

Here's a picture of the eclipse path for April 8, 2024

Hi Lucius!

If I'm still up and running in 2024, I plan to get myself to Ohio to watch it.

Now that's a thought.

Hi L & D.

Thanks for starting this thread.

I'm excited about the 2024 eclipse, too. I've already wasted a couple perfectly good mornings perusing possible camping spots!!

Totality lasts longest where the eclipse enters Texas and is shortest when it leaves Maine. So I was mostly looking at Texas and Arkansas.

The eclipse map linked below is zoomable and clickable, so you can find out how long totality lasts anywhere. It also has a geographic place name search, so you can enter all your friends addresses to find out if you need to visit them 8 April '24!!

Happy planning!

Thanks for starting this thread.

As has been mentioned on the other Eclipse threads, Jackson Center, Ohio will be at the totality path and have almost 4 minutes of totality.

That sure would be fun reason to have rally there.

The next major one thru the US will be in 2045.

Sounds like a plan in the making.

I noticed your comment and comments from others on the 2017 eclipse thread. I sent an email to Airstream as well as the publisher of Airstream Life regarding the idea of a 2024 eclipse event in Jackson Center. Hopefully others will send their comments to create some momentum. A 2024 rally at the mother ship would be lots of fun.

Early April does not bode well for a clear sky and Ohio would be very unlikely. My vote would be Texas and I'll come with fingers crossed
