Total Eclipse Information

On April 8, 2024, the celestial stage will be set for an extraordinary event in Syracuse, New York: a total solar eclipse. As the Moon gracefully glides between the Earth and the Sun, it will cast a shadow upon our planet, momentarily dimming the daylight and captivating observers across the region. Here are the essential details for eclipse enthusiasts:

  • Eclipse Timing:
    • Eclipse Begins: Around 2:09 PM, the Moon’s silhouette will delicately touch the Sun’s edge, marking the beginning of this cosmic spectacle.
    • Totality Begins: At precisely 3:23 PM, the Sun will be completely obscured by the Moon, plunging Syracuse into a brief but enchanting darkness.
    • Totality Duration: Depending on your precise location within the path of totality, you’ll experience approximately 1 minute and 27 seconds of complete eclipse.
    • Eclipse Ends: By 4:34 PM, the Moon will have completed its celestial dance, and daylight will gradually return.
  • Why Syracuse?:
    • Syracuse lies very close to the eastern limit of the eclipse path, making it an excellent vantage point.
    • While the downtown area will witness about 1 minute and 24 seconds of totality, adventurous eclipse chasers can venture north on Interstate 81 to intersect with the eclipse centerline, where longer durations await.
    • Whether you’re a local or a visitor, this rare cosmic alignment promises an unforgettable view of the Sun’s elusive corona.
  • Weather Considerations:
    • Keep an eye on the weather forecast for Syracuse. Clear skies are essential for optimal eclipse viewing.
