2024 Total Solar Eclipse in Vermont
April 8, 2024
When is the Next Solar Eclipse?
On April 8, 2024 at 2:14 p.m., a partial solar eclipse will begin, and at 3:26 p.m., a total eclipse will darken Vermont’s daytime sky, lasting about 3 minutes. The phenomenon will continue as a partial eclipse until 4:37 p.m.
Where to See the Next Solar Eclipse
Much of northern Vermont will be within the eclipse’s 70- to 80-mile-wide path of totality, including downtowns, mountain peaks and valleys.
Looking directly at the sun can permanently damage your eyes. The only safe way to look at the eclipse is through specially made solar filters, such as those found in eclipse glasses.
Looking Back: Vermont's Last Total Solar Eclipse
The last time Vermont had a “front row seat” for a total solar eclipse was in 1932, when it was hailed as a “grand celestial spectacle.” Road rules were changed to allow for the minutes of darkness and bulletins advised drivers to pull over and turn off headlights so as to preserve the natural phenomenon.
