It’s not too soon to begin planning for how you will view April 8, 2024’s solar eclipse. The map (above) shows the path of totality. If you are in or near this zone you’ll be able to glimpse a rare total eclipse of the sun that should look something like this:

PRO TIP: Don’t even think about looking skyward during the eclipse without protective eyewear — and, no, ordinary sunglasses won’t cut it. I’ve just ordered my certified viewing glasses from Amazon.

Be sure you get eye protection that meets certification standards, like these, or use the pinhole method and avoid looking directly at it altogether.

If you want to travel to one of the eclipse locations, make your travel and lodging plans right away. It is going to get very crowded out there.
