2024 Solar Eclipse

On April 8, 2024, Ohio will witness a total solar eclipse within a 124-mile-wide band. Areas in Ohio that are outside the path of totality will experience a partial eclipse. These occurrences are rare and extraordinary. In the history of the United States, only 21 total solar eclipses have crossed the lower 48 states. Ohio's last total solar eclipse took place in 1806, and the next is forecast for 2099.

Plan ahead:

  • Learn the simple methods to safely view a solar eclipse. 
  • Check out the key steps as an owner, president, or manager responsible for your place of business to consider so that you’re prepared for the influx of visitors on/around April 8, 2024.
  • Parking rules will be enforced. Do not park on public property except for designated parking spaces.
  • Stores and businesses may be closed or overwhelmed that day. Call ahead to confirm.
