Description

On Monday, April 8, 2024, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible from parts of the United States and Canada. Although a partial eclipse will be seen from all of North America, the total phase in which the Moon completely covers the Sun will only be seen from within the approximately 120-mile-wide path of the Moon's umbral shadow as it sweeps across Mexico, The United States, and Canada.

The Eclipse Bulletin: Total Solar Eclipse of 2024 April 08 is the ultimate guide to this highly anticipated sky event.  Written by two of the leading experts on eclipses, the bulletin is a treasure trove of facts on every conceivable aspect of the eclipse.  Exact details about the path of the Moon's shadow can be found in a series of tables containing geographic coordinates, times, altitudes, and physical dimensions.  A number of high resolution maps plot the total eclipse track across Mexico, the USA, and Canada.  They show hundreds of cities and towns in the path, the location of major roads and highways, and the duration of totality with distance from the central line.

Local circumstance tables for hundreds of cities throughout Mexico, the USA, and Canada provide times for each phase of the eclipse along with the eclipse magnitude, duration and Sun's altitude.  An exhaustive climatological study identifies areas along the eclipse path where the highest probability of favorable weather may be found.  Finally, comprehensive information is presented about solar filters and how to safely observe the eclipse.

For 15 years, authors Fred Espenak and Jay Anderson published more than a dozen eclipse bulletins for NASA, each one covering a major solar eclipse.  Prepared in cooperation with the IAU, the bulletins were internationally recognized as the most authoritative reference for each eclipse.  The team has reunited to produce this new bulletin on the 2024 total eclipse through North America.
