Virginia Beach sky-watchers will see next partial eclipse in April of 2024

August 28, 2017

 

     Virginia Beach residents were able to enjoy a partial solar eclipse last Monday afternoon, when the sun, moon and earth aligned.

 

     The last time a total solar eclipse was visible across all of the United States was June 8, 1918; not since the February 1979 eclipse has a total eclipse been visible from anywhere in the mainland United States.

 

     The path of totality moved westerly to easterly across the middle of America, touching 14 states, while the rest of the U. S. experienced a partial eclipse.

 

     The next eclipse over the U.S. occurs in April of 2024, darkening the sky south to north, from Texas to Maine.
