The solar eclipse will begin on April 24 and will last for an hour and a half.
It will be visible from Hawaii and across much of the United States.
The eclipse is predicted to be one of the most spectacular events in the history of the sun, but it won’t be completely free of clouds.
In fact, the eclipse will be partially blocked by clouds, so even though the sun will be completely obscured, there will be a small portion of the moon in the path of totality.
Below are the key points of the eclipse:The path of the solar corona will pass over Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon, California and Nevada before passing through the contiguous U.S.
The path will pass through the states of Hawaii, Oregon and California before passing into Arizona and ColoradoThe eclipse will last about 30 minutes, with totality expected to be complete at 11:59 p.ms.
The sun will begin to slowly fade from the sun.
It should remain partially obscured for about 2 hours, but clouds will start to form in the eastern part of the path.
The last hour of totality will be at 11 p. m.
PDT, when the moon will be in the shadow of the Sun.
