2024 Solar Eclipse Over Cleveland - The Cleveland Moms

As I’m sure you’ve heard the news: 2024 is a HUGE deal for the Cleveland area this year as a TOTAL solar eclipse is set to occur on April 8th at 3:15pm. Cleveland will be within the path of totality. What does that mean exactly? Well, there will be nearly four minutes of darkness in the middle of the afternoon as the Moon moves between the Earth and the Sun. This won’t happen again in Cleveland until the year 2444. ๐Ÿคฏ

There will be many events on April 8th as well as leading up to it & TheClevelandMoms.com will continuously stay updated to keep you informed.
In case you’re new here, the CALENDAR OF EVENTS is where all events in & around Cleveland are shared as well.
