A total solar eclipse comes to much of Ohio! Be prepared to see the greatest sight nature offers, a total eclipse of the Sun. Be sure to get inside the path of totality for the full experience.

Simply put, a total eclipse of the Sun is the most beautiful sight you will ever see in the sky. Nothing can prepare you for the amazing sight when the sky suddenly darkens and the Sun’s corona shines in the sky. No photograph can capture the stunning beauty of a total solar eclipse, you must see it for yourself. Learn about the basics of the solar eclipse at greatamericaneclipse.com/basics and find out more about the wonder of eclipses at greatamericaneclipse.com/splendor. Find your copy of this map here.

Cleveland is one of the largest cities inside the path of totality. Dayton, Toledo, Bowling Green, Akron, and other cities will also witness totality. Cincinnati, Columbus, Canton, and Youngstown are very close to the path and we expect many people in these cities to make the short drive north on eclipse day. The city of Wapakoneta, birthplace of Neil Armstrong, will also experience totality and is notable as the site of the Armstrong Air & Space Museum.

For eclipse viewing, mobility is essential especially in case of inclement weather. Within Ohio, Interstate 75 provides north-south access from Dayton to Toledo. Interstate 90 parallels Lake Erie from Toledo to Cleveland and Ashtabula. Interstate 71 from Cleveland to Cleveland will be another key access route. Ohio is graced with many excellent highways and infrastructure for eclipse visitors.

The total solar eclipse visits Ohio on April 8, 2024 beginning at 3:08 pm EDT with the final exit of the Moon’s shadow from the state at 3:19 pm EDT. Through Ohio, the speed of the Moon’s shadow will accelerate from about 1995 miles per hour to about 2290 miles per hour.
