More About Total Solar Eclipse Today!

The next total solar eclipse to visit North America will be April 8, 2024. The duration of totality will be up to 4 minutes and 27 seconds, almost double that of The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017. During a total eclipse of the Sun, the Moon covers the entire disk of the Sun.

Solar eclipses can be viewed safely. The rules are simple; use only ISO certified-safe solar viewers, keep them on while the Sun is not yet fully eclipsed. Once the sky suddenly turns dark, and the solar corona appears, then you can take off your eclipse glasses or viewers to look at the Sun’s amazing corona.
