A total solar eclipse will be visible through New York State on April 8, 2024. The path of totality will run from Jamestown and Buffalo through Rochester, Seneca Falls and Auburn into Syracuse and Watertown, into the North Country. The rest of New York State will see a partial eclipse, with at least 88% totality (in Long Island). Ithaca will see 98-99% totality. The next total eclipse for the United States will be in 2045 and the next one in New York won't be until 2079!
