Glasses for April 8th’s Solar Eclipse

We are now out of glasses.

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, United States, and Canada. The path of the totality – where the Sun is blocked out completely by the Moon passing exactly in front of it – is about 125 miles north of us, passing over Lancaster, NH, but we’ll still have an impressive view here in Dracut. The eclipse will begin at 2:16pm, peak at 3:29pm with 94% coverage, and end at 4:38pm.

Never look at the sun without special eye protection. When viewing the eclipse, use eclipse glasses that conform to ISO standard 12312-2 (or an indirect viewing method, such as a pinhole projector) at all times when any part of the sun is visible. Direct viewing of the sun can cause permanent damage, regardless of whether or not it is partially obscured by the moon.
