TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The “Great American Eclipse” of 2017 that handed about much of the nation ignited significant interest and influenced numerous by stunning us for two minutes and 40 seconds where by the moon blocked out all but the fiery corona of our sunlight.

The good information is we have some enjoyment to seem forward to! In just two decades – on April 8, 2024 – one more solar eclipse will make its way across a great deal of The us.

The route of totality stretches from Mexico to Maine. We will have to vacation to see totality simply because the path does not contact Florida.

Is it well worth it to travel to see totality? Totally.

The ideal way I can explain the change amongst a partial eclipse and a complete photo voltaic eclipse is a sports analogy.

A partial eclipse is like tailgating at a football activity: it’s fun, you are exterior the stadium and you take pleasure in yourself. A whole solar eclipse is like catching Tom Brady’s video game-profitable landing in the Super Bowl. Intellect-blowing, life-switching (for me at minimum) — an remarkable knowledge that most individuals really do not get the chance to have.

If you’re interested in traveling to see the 2024 eclipse – plan ahead. Motels are pricey and hard to arrive by close to the route of totality.

Here’s a seem at the following eclipse’s route we could see domestically right after that a single:

The route of totality for the 2024 eclipse.

Although I normally consider weather conditions is very critical, in a photo voltaic eclipse – clouds make the change in basically currently being in a position to see it or not. Individuals will examine the regular cloud deal with for the day and the path of totality to make their travel designs.

The upcoming eclipse should really be even greater than the last. Together the peak locations in the U.S., the time of totality is shut to two minutes lengthier than the prior eclipse in 2017. The 2024 eclipse will have 4 minutes and 28 seconds of totality whilst the 2017 eclipse at peak had two minutes and 41 seconds of totality.

Is it 2024 still?! I simply cannot hold out.
