Total Solar Eclipse over New Hampshire on April 8, 2024


On April 8, 2024, a Total Solar Eclipse will darken New Hampshire's skies in one of nature's most awe-inspiring shows.

For 3 minutes and 15 seconds, skies will dim, temperatures will drop, and the country will pause to watch as the moon passes over the light of the sun, completely blocking its light.

The total solar eclipse visits New Hampshire on April 8, 2024, one of only 13 states to experience totality of the Great North American Solar Eclipse.

The northern third of New Hampshire gets a total solar eclipse! Be prepared to see the greatest sight nature offers, a total eclipse of the Sun. Be sure to get inside the path of totality for the full experience.

Simply put, a total eclipse of the Sun is the most beautiful sight you will ever see in the sky. Nothing can prepare you for the amazing sight when the sky suddenly darkens and the Sun’s corona shines in the sky. No photograph can capture the stunning beauty of a total solar eclipse, you must see it for yourself, and we ask that you do this SAFELY.

Science in the Mountains: The 2024 Solar Eclipse
Astronomer John Gianforte provides the science behind this awe-inspiring phenomenon and how you can be a part of this experience of a lifetime. John shares the details about the path of totality and how to view the eclipse and Sun safely.
