How NYC will experience the 2024 solar eclipse: Watch

A total solar eclipse will cross into New York State Monday afternoon, but the Big Apple will just miss the full spectacle. Instead, NYC will experience a partial eclipse at 3:25 p.m., with 89.6% of the sun covered by the moon at its peak.

What will that look like for New Yorkers? Here's what you can expect, according to NASA. (And remember: Eclipse glasses are a must to prevent eye damage!)

The path of totality stretched from Oregon to South Carolina, meaning NYC only experienced a partial eclipse. Around 72% of the sun was covered by the moon during the peak

Skies were clear along most of the route, to the relief of those who feared cloud cover would spoil the moment.

US path of totality

The moon’s shadow will slice a diagonal line from the southwest to the northeast across North America, briefly plunging communities along the track into darkness. Totality will enter the continent at Mazatlan, Mexico, and exit at Newfoundland in Canada.

In between, 15 U.S. states from Texas to Maine will experience totality, including snippets of Tennessee and Michigan. It will be a repeat for Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and Carbondale, Illinois, which were also in prime position for 2017’s total solar eclipse.
