How you can prepare for 2024
Starting in 2019, on any day from about April 1 to April 16, or from about August 25 to September 8, visit the viewing locations you might be thinking of. Be there at 3:20 pm and notice where the Sun is in the sky. That’s about where the Sun will be at totality on April 8, 2024. Do you have a good view?
Think about possible conditions on April 8 in Rochester. The ground might be frozen, or it might be too soft and muddy to support a lawn chair. Make plans.
