Solar Eclipse 2024

On April 8, 2024, the Moon aligned perfectly with the Sun, creating a total solar eclipse in its shadow. The path of the eclipse ran from the equatorial Pacific through Mexico then crossed from Texas to Vermont, and east to Newfoundland. During the eclipse, the Moon completely blocked the Sun, lasting from a few seconds, to as long as 4 minutes and 28 seconds. This event is the only total solar eclipse to travel across Mexico, the United States, and Canada during the 21st century.

Eclipse Glasses

You can return eclipse glasses in good condition to the Museum. We will bring them to a colleciton hub in Vermont that is partnered with Astronomers without Borders.

The Great American Eclipse drew thousands to experience totality together.

We’ll post images and thoughts about this event here.
