Witness the Total Solar Eclipse Live Across North America on April 8, 2024 (Video)

Experience the awe-inspiring phenomenon of a total solar eclipse as it traverses North America on April 8, 2024, journeying through Mexico, across the United States from Texas to Maine, and onward across Canada’s Atlantic coast.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, completely obscuring the Sun’s face. During this phenomenon, the sky will darken, resembling dawn or dusk.

Between 1 to 4 p.m. EDT (1700 to 2000 UTC) on April 8, we’ll engage in discussions with experts and provide telescope views of the eclipse from various locations along its path. Throughout the broadcast, feel free to submit your questions in the chat using #askNASA for a chance to have them answered live.

WARNING: It is unsafe to look directly at the Sun without specialized eye protection for solar viewing, except during the brief total phase of a total solar eclipse when the Moon fully covers the Sun. Indirect viewing methods, such as pinhole projectors, are recommended to safely experience the eclipse. For more information on how to view the eclipse safely, visit: Eclipse Safety Guidelines.
