The 2024 total solar eclipse is undeniably the most significant event in North America in the next year. The so-called Great Nort American Elipse or at least Great American Eclipse will be visible in a wide swath from Mexico to Canada (New Foundland). Indeed, these areas aren’t the only ones, where the totality will occur. In fact, these are only on the grounds, but there is a distant eclipse pathway possible to observe from the ocean. The totality starts with a length of 2m06s north of Cook Islands (next to Penhryn Atoll), culminates with 4m28s near Torreon in Mexico (close to Nazas town), and finishes at North Atlantic with a length of 2m13s.
The major eclipse event is a widespread subject of discussion for American astronomers and popularized science. Most of the information is available on the following websites below:
and several others.
The finish of the totality at Northern Atlantic with the duration of 2m13s will be the crucial element of this celestial event from a European point of view.
Unlike our American colleagues, NOBODY tries to draw attention to the same event in Western Europe, except for just one sentence saying, that the partial solar eclipse will be visible at the northernmost and westernmost bits of the continent.
THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THIS WEBSITE is to make people aware of what is going to happen on the same day in EUROPE.
Let’s get started then.
