When does the eclipse start in my area?

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – With the April 8 solar eclipse getting closer, we have been getting requests to provide a timetable as to the start and end times of the eclipse across central New York.

Here in Syracuse, totality starts at 3:23 p.m. and lasts for only a minute and 25 seconds so totality ends at 3:24 p.m. However, the moon first begins to cross the sun at 2:09 p.m.

Because the moon’s shadow is moving about 1500 mph over the earth’s surface, the times from city to city across the region don’t vary by more than a couple of minutes.

Between the short period when the total eclipse starts and ends you will be able to take off your eclipse glasses to view the sun.

It is only safe to remove your glasses when you are in totality. Anytime else you must keep the eclipse glasses on the entire time to prevent damage to your eyes.
