2024 Total Solar Eclipse
On Monday, April 8, 2024, there will be a total solar eclipse, and Genesee County is in the direct path of totality. A total solar eclipse occurs when the new Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and totally blocks out the sun.
Experience this once in a lifetime event in Genesee County, where totality will last for 3 minutes and 42 seconds. During totality, the sky becomes dark, bright stars and planets appear, and the Sun’s outer atmosphere shines around the black disk of the Moon’s silhouette. Changes in temperature, winds, and animal behavior occur during the time around totality. The experience is emotionally powerful and unforgettable.
