A Tour of NASA’s Solar Eclipse Map for 2023 & 2024 | NASA Goddard

A Tour of NASA’s Solar Eclipse Map for 2023 & 2024 | NASA Goddard

Two solar eclipses will cross the United States in 2023 and 2024. On October 14, 2023, an annular solar eclipse will create a “ring of fire” in the sky from Oregon to Texas. On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will darken the skies from Texas to Maine. On both dates, all 48 contiguous states in the U.S. will experience a partial solar eclipse.

A map developed using data from a variety of NASA sources shows both eclipse paths as dark bands. Outside those paths, yellow and purple lines show how much of the Sun will become blocked by the Moon during the partial eclipses.

This video zooms in to different parts of the map, explaining these and other features that describe what observers across the country can expect to see during each eclipse.
