Meaning, where, when it would occur

A total solar eclipse will cover the sun on Monday, April 8, 2023, for millions of people in North America as it crosses from Mexico into the United States and then Canada.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, fully concealing the sun’s face along a short area of the plant’s surface known as “the path of totality,” while the sky turns dark during the day as if it were dawn or dusk.

After the 2024 total solar eclipse in the United States of America, the next one will occur in 2044.

According to NASA, it will begin over the South Pacific, crossing Mexico’s Pacific coast at about 11:07 a.m. Pacific time before hitting the United States in Texas.

Its path would pass across Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, a small portion of Tennessee, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, a small portion of Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

However, safety should be the main priority when witnessing a total solar eclipse, since it is critical to understand when to wear specialised solar viewing eye protection, except during the brief total phase of a total solar eclipse, when the Moon totally obscures the Sun’s dazzling face.
