2024 ECLIPSE IN JONESBORO, ARKANSAS

Total Solar EclipseOn April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will occur in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Located in the northeastern corner of the state, Jonesboro is fairly close to the eastern edge of the eclipse path where durations of totality will be relatively short as compared to locations closer to the eclipse centerline. The downtown area of Jonesboro will get about 2 minutes and 21 seconds of totality. Jonesboro will likely see an influx of eclipse day-trippers on April 8 due to its proximity to Memphis, Tennessee, which is located outside the path of totality but close enough to encourage eclipse chasers to drive into the eclipse path on the day of the eclipse. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Jonesboro for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
