What is a Solar Eclipse?
A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, blocking some or all of the sun to earth’s surface.

What Type of Eclipse Is It?
The 2024 eclipse will be a total eclipse. During a total eclipse, the moon completely blocks the sun. Even though the sun is about 400 times larger than the moon, the distance between each solar body creates the illusion that they’re the same size in the sky when viewed from earth.

On April 8, 2024 the Total Solar Eclipse will be seen in Long Lake & Raquette Lake

In Long Lake the Partial eclipse will start at 2:12pm and reach totality at 3:24pm and last for 3 mins and 1.4 seconds.
