SOLAR ECLIPSE 2024: Everything You Need To Know For The Lakewood Region

Monday’s total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. The total solar eclipse will begin over the South Pacific Ocean. Weather permitting, the first location in continental North America that will experience totality is Mexico’s Pacific coast at around 2:07 p.m. EST.

The path of the eclipse continues from Mexico, entering the United States in Texas, and traveling through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Small parts of Tennessee and Michigan will also experience the total solar eclipse. The eclipse will enter Canada in Southern Ontario, and continue through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton. The eclipse totality will exit continental North America on the Atlantic coast of Newfoundland, Canada, at 3:46 p.m. EST.

So, what are the eclipse times for the Lakewood region? According to NASA’s searchable map, the moon will begin covering the sun at 2:07 PM Monday, gradually covering more of it until maximum at 3:24 PM. However, because Lakewood is not in the path of totality, only 87.8% of the sun will be covered by the moon at maximum.

If you’re in the Lakewood region, the closest area in the path of totality is Syracuse, NY, about a 4 and a half hour drive from Lakewood.

This is what the sun will look like from the Lakewood region at the eclipse’s maximum

As you’re already likely well aware, it is extremely dangerous to look directly at the sun ever, but especially during a solar eclipse. Doing so can cause immediate, irreversible damage to your eyes. Make sure to wear solar eclipse glasses with the proper safety rating.
