Project Mexico / USA - Total Solar Eclipse - April 2024

The total solar eclipse on 8th April 2024 will be an opportunity for a large part of the population of North America to see this long eclipse. The eclipse track reaches landfall near Mazatlán on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, crossing the central desert area and reaching the US border in Texas. As the track continues across the US the event will become the main news story, highlighting the extraordinary spectacle of these rare events.

For solar eclipse followers the prospect of a clear sky for the eclipse is a vital consideration, and a journey to the best eclipse observation location becomes a vital part of the event, particularly when travelling with others who share the same interest.

 

The chart below, prepared by meteorologist Jay Anderson on his Eclipsophile website, gives an overview of the cloud prospects along the eclipse track. The climate of the arid Mexican desert clearly offers the very best prospect of a clear sky, with Texas and other parts of the southern US also quite promising. The northern parts of the eclipse track will be more challenging at this time of year but a small clear patch in the early afternoon will be sufficient to see the event and an image of the eclipse over Niagara Falls would be breathtaking!
