Best Places To Watch Eclipse: A complete solar eclipse is scheduled to cross North America on April 8. As the moon transits between sun and Earth, obstructing the light of the sun, the sky above the U.S., Canada and Mexico will darken as if it was dusk or dawn, NASA says.

Before next complete solar eclipse is visible from the contiguous United States, it will be 2044.

Unless clouds are obstructing your view, you may see the eclipse in 2024 from anyplace in North America. However, the majority of locations will only witness a partial solar eclipse. You must be in the path of the “totality,” where the sun’s light is totally obscured, to get the full impact.

Several of the greatest viewing spots along the eclipse’s totality path have been chosen by us. Our selection process took into account a number of variables, such as nearby eclipse activities, services for visitors from outside the area, and the length of the complete eclipse in each location, as provided by

Solar Eclipse 2024: List of Total Solar Eclipse To Be Witnessed

Here are a few top locations to witness the complete solar eclipse.


Here’s wonderful news: You won’t need a telescope. You will, however, undoubtedly require specific eye protection. Looking directly at the sun, even through a camera, telescope or binoculars “will instantly cause severe eye injury,” NASA says.

Additionally, avoid trying to see an eclipse while wearing ordinary sunglasses. In this instance, safety entails the use of specialised eye protection, such as solar filters attached to telescopes, binoculars, or camera lenses, or portable solar viewers or eclipse glasses.

Alternately, use a homemade gadget to observe indirectly. As Katie Kizziar, assistant director of Texas’ McDonald Observatory, tells Texas Monthly, “Indirect viewers can include a cereal-box pinhole viewer or even a cracker (one like a Ritz, that has tiny holes), a colander, or tree leaves.”

Best Places To Watch Eclipse

Texas’s Dallas

The total solar eclipse at this location will:

  • Get started at 1:40 p.m. CT
  • 3 minutes and 47 seconds were spent.

It’s said that Texans prefer to boast about how huge and superior their state is. At least this time, it seems like they could be correct. After leaving Mexico, the eclipse will first be seen in the United States near southern Texas.

As per Dallas-Fort Worth’s NBC Channel 5, “Texas will have (the) greatest path of totality of any state in the United States.”

The whole Dallas-Fort Worth region is within the totality’s route.


The Chamber of Commerce for Poplar Bluff Area is prepared: “Merch” is available, such as a T-shirt that reads, “I Got Mooned in Poplar Bluff.” Additionally, the chamber’s eclipse schedule included a Total Eclipse of the Bluff Festival, a lecture by retired NASA astronaut Tom Akers, and night golf.

Illinois’s Carbondale

The total solar eclipse at this location will:

  • Get started at 1:59 p.m. CDT
  • Duration: four minutes and eight seconds

Carbondale has created a website,, to capitalise on the city’s moment in (and out of) the sun. Its tagline, “Southern Illinois, eclipse crossroads of America,” alludes to the city’s location in the path of totality in 2024 as well as the fact that the route of the complete solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, reached its point of maximum duration near Carbondale.

Don’t miss Southern Illinois University’s Crossroads Eclipse Festival on April 8 if you’re in Carbondale. There will be discussions, presentations, an arts and crafts fair, and a public eclipse watching at the university’s football stadium.
