The 7 Year Wait Is Over: 99 Percent Of Americans Will Be Able To See Either A Partial Or A Total...

•, By Michael

We have been waiting for this for a very long time.  On Monday, the 7 year wait will be over and the Great American Eclipse of 2024 will finally be here.  Personally, I have been writing articles about the Great American Eclipse of 2024 for more than 7 years, and I have been discussing it in my books since 2021.  The most ominous sign in the entire history of the United States is about to pass over our heads, and even though so many of us have been making so much noise about it for so many years, most of the population does not seem alarmed at all.  In fact, for much of the population the Great American Eclipse of 2024 will be just another opportunity to party.

Because so many Americans live within or very close to the path of totality, it is being projected that this will be the most viewed total solar eclipse that the U.S. has ever experienced…

The total eclipse will first appear along Mexico's Pacific Coast at around 11:07 a.m. PDT, then travel across a swath of the U.S., from Texas to Maine, and into Canada.

About 31.6 million people live in the path of totality, the area where the moon will fully block out the sun, according to NASA. The path will range between 108 and 122 miles wide. An additional 150 million people live within 200 miles of the path of totality.

There are more than 19,000 cities, towns and villages in the United States, and the very first one the path of totality will hit will be Eagle Pass, Texas

The eclipse will begin in the U.S. on the afternoon of April 8. It will first be visible as a partial eclipse beginning at 12:06 p.m. CDT near Eagle Pass, Texas, before progressing to totality by about 1:27 p.m. CDT and progressing along its path to the northeast over the next few hours.
