Celestial spectacle: Total solar eclipse sweeps across North America

A total solar eclipse swept across North America, captivating millions as darkness fell in the middle of the day. The eclipse’s path spanned from Mexico to Newfoundland, crossing 15 U.S. states and attracting observers to parks, rooftops, and towns. Clear skies offered a spectacular view, with the moon blocking the sun, leaving only a brilliant halo of light. It was the first such eclipse since 2017 and won’t occur again in the contiguous U.S. until 2044. Outside the path of totality, a partial eclipse was visible, drawing excitement and scientific research. To witness safely, certified eclipse glasses were essential. The next total eclipse in North America is slated for 2033, with other astronomical events to look forward to in April, including a comet’s close approach and the Lyrids meteor shower peak.
