Total Solar Eclipse FAQs:

What is a total solar eclipse?
A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, completely blocking the sun’s face.

What happens during a total solar eclipse?

The sky darkens as if it is dawn or dusk. Weather permitting, those in the path of totality can see the Sun’s corona, the outer atmosphere.  Animals and birds can become confused during a total solar eclipse, and temperatures can drop about 20 degrees.

Where in New Hampshire is the best place to view the total solar eclipse?

To get the best view of the eclipse, you’ll want to be directly in the path of totality. That includes anywhere north of Lancaster and Milan north to the Canadian border. If you’re OK with slightly less than 100% total eclipse, North Conway (98.5%) will be just as good!

When will there be another total solar eclipse visible in the US?

NH will not be in the direct path of a Solar Eclipse again until 2079.
