Solar Eclipse


A total solar eclipse is being expected to occur on Monday, April 8, 2024 and will be visible across North America. 

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has announced that on Monday, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will traverse North America, spanning across Mexico, the United States, and Canada.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth

In a statement made on Sunday, NASA emphasised the paramount importance of safety when observing a total solar eclipse.

It urged the public to familiarise themselves with the necessary precautions, including wearing specialised eye protection designed for solar viewing, as detailed in safety guidelines.

NASA invited people to witness the event live as the total solar eclipse makes its journey across North America, moving from Mexico, traversing the United States from Texas to Maine, and extending across Canada’s Atlantic coast.

This phenomenon happens when the moon passes between Earth and the sun, completely blocking the sun’s face.

While those in the path of totality will experience a total solar eclipse, those outside will see a partial one. During a total solar eclipse, the sky will darken, and there are different phases to observe.
