Total Eclipse 2024
On Monday April 8, 2024, the moon’s shadow will pass directly over Geneseo NY, causing a total solar eclipse.
Eclipses in the Solar System
Eclipses can happen anywhere, anytime a celestial body passes in front of another with the consequence of blocking its light as seen from a third location. View different eclipses that occur elsewhere in our Solar System.
Partial Solar Eclipses
In Partial and Annular Solar eclipses, the Moon does not cover the whole Sun.
Eclipses to Find Other Worlds
Eclipses, or more precisely transits, are being used to find thousands of planets outside of our Solar System (Exoplanets). Find out how astronomers use transits to hunt for planets orbiting stars other than the Sun.
