New York will see a total eclipse of the Sun on April 8, 2024. The northern portion of the state will see totality. If you are close to the USA/Canadian border, you will see close to three and a half minutes of darkness. The rest of the state will see a partial eclipse, including New York City.

The next total eclipse of the Sun for New York will be on May 1, 2079, including New York City and the state’s southeastern part (see map below). The next one after that will cover the mid and eastern portion of the state on October 26, 2144 (minus NYC)! Mark your calendars!

Eclipses of the Sun happen once every 18 months…on average. The cone of darkness from the Moon is no more than 62 to 166 miles wide as it travels across the sunlit surface of the Earth, depending on how far away the Moon is from the Earth. The Moon, Sun, and Earth must be in the right place and time to see a total eclipse of the Sun for your location.
