Solar Eclipse 2024!


Mark your calendars! A total solar eclipse will occur at the Moon’s ascending node on Monday, April 8, 2024, and will be visible across North America!



This eclipse has also been dubbed the Great North American Eclipse by some of the media, and millions have been anxiously waiting to see the path of this epic natural event.


So why is the 2024 eclipse so special? Mainly because the totality will last a little longer this time. The total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, only lasted a few minutes. The 2024 eclipse will last longer because the Moon lies a little closer to the Earth during totality in 2024 (as compared to totality in 2017), it will appear just a bit larger in the sky. That means it will take the Moon a bit longer to move in its orbit across the face of the Sun.


I was lucky enough to experience the last Solar Eclipse with a handful of fabulous ladies in Nashville, TN.



Unfortunately, I’ll have to skip the 2024 eclipse since its visibility range is a little out of my travel zone this year. According to NASA Science, on  Monday, April 8, 2024, a 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.



But if this in your area, I highly advise dropping everything and witnessing this natural event. I promise it will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.




Why are there crescent-shaped shadows during eclipse?


The Moon partially or blocks the Sun’s light during a solar eclipse. This creates small holes where the Sun’s light shines through the gaps between leaves or other objects. These small holes act as pinhole cameras, projecting tiny images of the Sun onto the ground.
