Preparing for the 2024 Solar Eclipse in Bowling Green OH

On April 8, 2024, the moon will cross directly between the Earth and the sun for a few hours, creating a total solar eclipse over major parts of North America. In this type of eclipse, the moon completely obscures the direct view of the sun in certain locations. However, a ring of light, known as a corona, can be seen around the moon. The corona is the sun’s atmosphere, and since it’s usually blocked out by the sun’s bright surface, it’s only visible during these types of events. 

Any particular location only experiences a totality from a solar eclipse once every few hundred years, so don’t miss this opportunity to see this once-in-a-lifetime event. When planning your viewing, use our protective glasses. Rays from the sun are harmful to your eyes even during an eclipse. The only safe time to take them off is during the 1-2 minutes of the totality. 

Can You See the Solar Eclipse in Bowling Green, Ohio?

You can see the 2024 solar eclipse in Bowling Green, Ohio. In fact, Bowling Green is in the narrow band of places in North America where you can experience the totality of the eclipse. If you’re in the city on April 8, 2024, you’ll be able to see the moon completely obscure the sun for a short time. When this happens, the sky will become dark as if it’s around dusk or dawn, but the sky won’t completely darken as much as it does at night. You’ll be able to see the totality from any location in the city.

What Time Will the 2024 Eclipse Happen?

In Bowling Green, the solar eclipse will begin at about 1:56 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on April 8, 2024. The totality will start more than an hour later at 3:11 p.m., and the moon will cover the maximum surface of the sun at about 3:12 p.m. The exact start of each eclipse phase can vary by a few seconds or even a minute depending on the part of the city in which you’re located.

How Long Will the 2024 Solar Eclipse Last?

The entire solar eclipse event in Bowling Green will last 2.5 hours. The totality, or when the moon completely covers the sun’s surface, will only last 3 minutes. This means during the entire span of the event, it’s only safe to take off your protective eyewear when looking up at the sky for a total of 3 minutes. If you want to look at the moon partially covering the sun at any other point, you’ll need to wear our protective glasses. Exactly how long the totality lasts in Bowling Green can vary by a few seconds depending on your location in the city.
