On Monday April 8, 2024, according to NASA, there will be a total solar eclipse. This eclipse will pass over Mexico, the United States and Canada. In our neck of the woods the eclipse will pass over Buffalo, for example, starting at 2:04pm and exiting by 4:32pm.

Do NOT watch the solar eclipse with your naked eyes. NASA recommends that you look through safe solar viewing glasses or a safe handheld solar viewer. Not even your sunglasses will not protect your eyes from this eclipse.

A limited number of I LOVE NY eclipse glasses are available now at locations throughout the state, including but not limited to the following;

  • New York State Welcome Centers along the New York State Thruway
  • Select service areas along the New York State Thruway
  • Official town visitors bureaus
  • National Comedy Center, Jamestown, NY
  • Moynihan Train Hall, Manhattan
  • Destiny USA, Syracuse
