2024 ECLIPSE IN ROCHESTER, NEW YORK

Rochester, New YorkOn April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will occur in Rochester, New York. Rochester is very close to the eclipse centerline, which heads out into the open waters of Lake Ontario just north of the city. This close proximity will result in a very healthy duration of totality for Rochester, about 3 minutes and 39 seconds in the downtown. As is the case with Lake Erie to the west, weather experts think the cold lake waters of Lake Ontario could aid eclipse viewers by preventing clouds from forming above and around the lake. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Rochester for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
