Millions in North America Await A Total Solar Eclipse Today

Millions of people across North America are ready to be mesmerized by a total solar eclipse today.

The eclipse will encompass a densely populated region of North America today (Monday), as the moon completely covers the sun for over four minutes in certain areas.

The eclipse will be observable in Mexico, throughout the United States, and Canada.

Eclipse Enthusiasts Converge

Enthusiasts of eclipses are congregating in spots along the “path of totality,” including Fredericksburg in central Texas, where the total eclipse will occur shortly after 1:30 p.m. (1830 GMT).

At a duration of up to 4 minutes and 28 seconds, the eclipse will last longer than the one that crossed parts of the United States in 2017, which lasted up to 2 minutes and 42 seconds.

Cities Where Eclipse Will Occur

As per the BBC’s science correspondent, some cities along the path of totality include Mazatlan, Mexico; San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas, Texas; Indianapolis, Indiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Erie, Pennsylvania; both Niagara Falls, New York, and Niagara Falls, Ontario, the site of the renowned waterfall; and Montreal, Quebec.
