A Solar Eclipse is Coming For Cleveland ... in Five Years

Who could forget the solar eclipse of 2017, with that image of President Trump looking directly into the sun without his special glasses? Unfortunately, back then, Cleveland wasn't in the path of the total eclipse and didn't experience the direct effects of the magical event. But come April 8, 2024, it's our turn to be in the spotlight, baby.

Five whole years from now, a solar eclipse — when the Earth, moon and sun are fully aligned, thus creating a spectacular shadow seen from our planet — will appear in our sky for nearly four whole minutes at about 3:13 p.m. that day. Akron, too, will see about two minutes of show time.

Ohio is one of only 13 states that will experience this rare and celebrated occurrence in its totality.

Find a detailed map of the event's projected path right here.

Whatever you do, if you plan to take in the light/dark action, don't forget your glasses.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
