TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE of April 8, 2024
The next observable total solar eclipse will occur on April 8, 2024. It will be an incredible opportunity to witness this natural celestial phenomenon. You’ll need to do a little planning to avoid missing out!
Depending on your location, the eclipse will take place between 2:14 p.m. and 4:40 p.m., reaching totality around 3:25 p.m. or 3:30 p.m.
PATH OF TOTALITY
The key to successfully observing an eclipse is choosing the right viewing location. If possible, plan to watch from a location along the path of totality, where the Sun will be entirely covered by the Moon. Those outside the path of the total solar eclipse will simply not have the full experience.
Keep your eyes open
Luckily, when it comes to eclipses, we really can predict the future…

If you happen to be visiting the American Southwest, the Yucatán Peninsula or Colombia on October 14, 2023, you’ll be able to admire the ring of fire associated with an annular solar eclipse! In Quebec, this eclipse will be partial and not that impressive, just like the lunar eclipse expected on October 28.
April 8, 2024
Of course, the total solar eclipse of April 8, 2024, is the reason behind this website and the joint efforts of various stakeholders in Quebec’s astronomical community. Don’t miss this opportunity: the next total solar eclipse visible from Quebec won’t be until 2106!
The next partial eclipses will happen in 2025: a lunar eclipse on March 14 and a solar eclipse on March 29.
