The first solar eclipse of 2024 will be visible on April 8.

The solar eclipse will be visible in North American countries like Mexico, USA and Canada.

This will be the first time since August 2017 that a total solar eclipse will be observed in the US, and people in the region will have to wait until August 2044 to see it again.

The last total solar eclipse in the world was in December 2021, but it was observed only in Antarktika.

The solar eclipse will begin in Mexico from where it will travel in a northeasterly direction from the United States and end in the eastern provinces of Canada.

According to an estimate, 33 million people in America alone will be able to witness the solar eclipse.

During a total solar eclipse, the moon’s shadow completely hides the sun, and the daytime is dark.

According to the American space agency NASA, the duration of the total solar eclipse on April 8 will be 3 and a half to 4 minutes.

After that, the next total solar eclipse will be in August 2026, which will be visible in countries like Greenland, Iceland, Spain and Portugal.

Keep in mind that direct viewing of a partial solar eclipse is damaging to the eyesight.
