On April 8, 2024, the Adirondacks will be one of the best locations in New York state and the entire Northeast to view an exceptional event, a total solar eclipse. This isn't just an amazing sight, it's also rare! Total solar eclipses happen over the same place on earth about once every 400 years; you won't want to miss this!
During the eclipse, more than half of the Adirondack Park will be in the path of totality, when the entire face of the sun is obscured by the moon.
From viewing parties to wide-open fields, find your ideal spot to view this once-in-a-lifetime natural wonder.
A total solar eclipse is what happens when the moon passes between the earth and the sun. We're then within the shadow of the moon.
The sky dims, even in the middle of the day, and all that we on earth can see of the sun is the corona: the beautiful, long streams of light that emanate from the sun.
You're here for a natural spectacle in Adirondack skies, so be sure to love the rest of the Adirondacks' natural beauty, too! While you're here, follow Leave No Trace Principles such as walk through the mud (yes, you read that right!), pack your trash out, and don't disturb the wildlife. This is an exciting event, but we're counting on you to help us preserve this wonderful place.Learn More
