For the most dramatic experience of the coming Total Solar Eclipse, you’ll need to be in the path of totality.
Although many of the areas covered by the path of totality are privately-held, many parks span the path and are open for visits, although you can expect that parking may be a serious problem!
The Monday, April 8, 2024, total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. The total solar eclipse will begin over the South Pacific Ocean. Weather permitting, the first location in continental North America that will experience totality is Mexico’s Pacific coast at around 11:07 a.m. PDT.
The path of the eclipse continues from Mexico, entering the United States in Texas, and traveling through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. The eclipse will enter Canada in Southern Ontario, and continue through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton. The eclipse will exit continental North America on the Atlantic coast of Newfoundland, Canada, at 5:16 p.m. NDT.
This table provides the time that totality begins in a city in each US state in the path of totality. These areas will also experience a partial eclipse before and after these times.
