Viewing the Total Eclipse

the best view on earth

As the U.S. learned during the Great American Eclipse of 2017, 99% is not totality. April 8, 2024 provides the last great opportunity for large segments of our country to experience a total solar eclipse until the next one happens in 2049. Rochester, NY, in the center of the path, is the place you and your family want to be on April 8, 2024 at 3:20pm.
