Total eclipse of the Sun 2024
April 8th, 2024 from 14h15 to 16h30
Total eclipse of the Sun
Several million Quebecers live in the band of totality and will be able to observe this rare astronomical phenomenon, which usually happens only once in a lifetime.
A total solar eclipse will take place on the afternoon of April 8, 2024 and will be visible in southern Quebec.
This unique and rare astronomical phenomenon occurs when the Moon is placed between the Earth and the Sun and completely hides it for a short period of time.
This eclipse is a unique event for Quebec; it will be the first total eclipse since 1972 and the last major one of the century in the province.
