2024 Total Solar Eclipse – IOTW Report

2024 Total Solar Eclipse

NASA: On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk.

Safety is the number one priority when viewing a total solar eclipse. Be sure you’re familiar with when you need to wear specialized eye protection designed for solar viewing by reviewing these safety guidelines. more

  1. They’re showing the old trajectory. It was updated this morning. Everything changed course. Bull shit the miscalculated it from the git. Diversity is our strength. Anyway if you check the current path it misses the US to the east. Will it be visible here? I have no idea. But don’t forget to stock up on food and water. If something bad happens during this shit show, your government did it.

  2. In 2017 I gave my son my welding hood that I had already tested.

    I’ve seen plenty of partials, and enough totals.

    I have no idea why they are losing their minds.

  3. And if you put your head up your ass you will see Uranus!

    Just another event to hype and use against the American people in support of Global domination by leftists.

  4. Toronto:

    They are keeping kids home from School & have Declared a State of Emergency for Niagra Falls due to crowds apparently after they promoted it.

    What a Joke…

    In a few more years Canadians will be afraid to take a Piss without Water Wings & a Crash Helmet.

  5. I’ll do my best Gr AM 4th of July…
    You seen one eclipse, you’ve seen them all. I’m going over to Steve’s to watch the game on his new 80″ flat screen. It’s not everyday you get to watch a baseball game for free.

  6. A lot of money has been spent by people flocking to see this “once-in-a-lifetime” event. Unfortunately, the weather forecast is looking grim. The good news is that the rain should be over by this evening, and we should have clear skies tomorrow. Wonder if they can postpone?

  7. I heard of a way to utilize your smart phone to watch the eclipse.
    Turn on the camera and put it in “selfie” mode. Then face away from the sun, point your phone over your shoulder and watch it on your phone screen.

  8. I’m on the 99% path but I’ve seen them before as recently as 2017 so it’s not a big deal and I’ll take in what I can see out my window. It’s 2:40 pm right now and peak for my area is around 3:40 pm. Don’t see why it’s such a big deal and I find all the doom and gloom prophecies hilarious. Having our current moron for President worries more than some astronomy events ever could.

  9. Up here in North Maine, the only time I’ve seen more freaks in town was when they had a Phish concert up at Loring Air Force base. A couple of Flatlanders came into the local deli while I held the door. Guy said that people are soooo nice up here.
    I told him that we’re even nicer after they leave.
    He had a strange kind of chuckle. HA!

  10. Great comments, Different Tim. Demonic Joe and crew are the true sign of perilous times, not the 2024 Eclipse.
    Those gloom and doom prophesies are way off – miss interpretation of Matthew 24:29 and Joel 2:31, a cataclysmic event yet to come according to the Holy Bible, when the sun goes out and the moon turns blood red. It will cause extreme weather events like tidalwaves, hurricanes etc. That’s not what happened today.
    Instead, today God showed He is a merciful. His grace and love was evident – allowing us to continue with our lives another wonderful day to witness the awesome manifestation of a scientific wonder only He can create.

  11. I witnessed the partial Eclipse. In my opinion, it was awesome. Didn’t need to be around a big crowd to view it. Just watched from my front porch.

  12. My little burg in southern Indiana was in the path of totality. Interesting, got some neat pictures & the drop in the temperature was nice. However, not entirely sure why there was no school & every place in town there were cops directing traffic, the stores were packed to overflowing, people on the roofs of houses everywhere you looked & to top it off, I had a meeting this morning that let out around 1:00 P.M. & on my way home I got behind a car full of idiots where the driver thought it was a good idea to slam on his brakes every 100 feet or so & then crane his neck out his window to look up at the sky. Sigh. Lemmings. When I arrived home, went out to my deck, lit up a good cigar, took it in & the world did not end!
