 Total Solar Eclipse of 2024 April 8
 in Mexico or the United States of America

The point of greatest eclipse (totality phase during 4 min 28 sec) lies in Mexico in the Durango state. Some people will try to observe this eclipse at the crossing point with the 2017 one in the USA, while on my side I will travel to Mexico where the duration is longer and the weather prospects better.

More comprehensive information and useful eclipse goodies can be found on the Great American Eclipse website maintained by my friend Michael Zeiler. The maps have been created using the data computed by my Solar Eclipse Maestro software. Please take also a moment to read those comprehensive instructions on how to observe the eclipse safely.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
