In just a few days, the sky will gift us one of its most impressive shows: a total solar eclipse that promises to capture the attention of millions. This phenomenon, which turns day into night for a few moments, is not only a visual delight but also a unique opportunity for astronomical observation and connection with the mysteries of the universe.

Prepare your eclipse glasses and direct your gaze to the sky: an extraordinary astronomical event will unfold over much of our planet. This total solar eclipse is a must-see event for enthusiasts and the curious about the cosmos.

When Will the Eclipse Be?

The total solar eclipse will take place on April 8, marking a significant astronomical event for Mexico and the United States. This phenomenon offers an exceptional opportunity to experience darkness in broad daylight.

From Which Countries Can It Be Seen

This phenomenon will be fully visible in specific regions of Mexico and the United States. The eclipse’s path covers a strip that extends from the Pacific coast of Mexico, across various U.S. states from Texas to Maine, and finally reaching Canada.

What Time Will It Begin to Be Seen

The spectacle will begin around 11:07 a.m. (local time) on the Pacific coast of Mexico, the first point in continental North America where the eclipse will become visible, weather conditions permitting.

What Will Be the Duration

The eclipse will last a total of approximately two and a half hours, although the period of totality—when the Sun is completely covered by the Moon—will last about four minutes for those fortunate enough to be in the center of the totality strip.

Importance of the Event

The uniqueness of this eclipse lies in its visibility from the 48 contiguous United States, a phenomenon that will not repeat until the year 2044.

Nearly 32 million people are in the path of this eclipse, ready to witness an unprecedented astronomical spectacle, surpassing even the audience of the 2017 eclipse.

With the Moon’s proximity to the Earth, this eclipse will not only be longer but also a reminder of the continuous wonders the universe has to offer.
