New England will be among the last places in the U.S. to experience the total solar eclipse on April 8, and northern Vermont, including Burlington, is in for a great show.

Here’s what you need to know about viewing the eclipse in Vermont:

What is a total solar eclipse?

A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun for several minutes.

From partial eclipse through totality, the process takes several hours. The final moments before totality include displays of light known as Baily’s Beads and the Diamond Ring caused by the pock-marked surface of the Moon.


Where can I see the total solar eclipse in Vermont?

Northern Vermont is the place to be during the solar eclipse if you’re looking to be in the path of totality on April 8.

Cities that are in the path of totality include Burlington, Waterbury, St. Albans and Island Pond.

And while central and southern Vermont won’t be in the path of totality, most of the Sun will be covered by the moon on April 8.

Cities that will enjoy a partial eclipse on April 8 include Rutland and Brattleboro.

What time is the solar eclipse in 2024?

A total solar eclipse is an hours-long event from partial eclipse through totality and partial eclipse again. However, totality will last between a few seconds to over 4 minutes, depending on where you are within the 115-mile path of totality.

The total solar eclipse will begin in Burlington at 2:14 p.m. EDT with totality starting at 3:26 p.m. and the eclipse ending at 4:37 p.m.

Most of the Sun will be obscured in Rutland during the eclipse, but the city is not in the path of totality.

The eclipse will begin at 2:14 p.m., with maximum coverage of 99.1% at 3:27 p.m. The eclipse will end at 4:37 p.m.

The FOX Forecast Center has put together the cloud cover forecast shown on the map above, showing areas with an overcast sky, many clouds or few clouds during the eclipse.
