Am I in the total or partial eclipse zone?




SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR/NEXSTAR) – With just under two weeks until eclipse day, many people are wondering if they will have to travel to see the total eclipse of the sun or if they are already in the path of totality.

It can be confusing since the total eclipse line cuts directly through the middle of many states.

In the state of Connecticut, this map will show the percentage of totality that you can see, depending on the city in which you live. Just hover over the spot that you are interested in and you will see when the eclipse begins and ends and how long (if at all) a geographic point will see the total eclipse of the sun.

If you’re able to take the time off of work or school to see the total eclipse, experts say you should consider it – some things can be seen only if the sun is completely blocked by the moon.

You also want to experience the longest time of the total eclipse. Depending on where you live, the length of the total eclipse of the sun could be anywhere from one minute to just four minutes.

The next solar eclipse won’t be visible from the contiguous United States until 2044.

Get ready for the eclipse on April 8
