The Total Eclipse of April 8, 2024

Another total solar eclipse is coming to North America! This time, totality will also pass over Mexico and Canada – giving people all over North America another chance to experience this great celestial event.

In order to see totality, you have to be in the path of totality. If you aren’t in that path, you’ll only see a partial eclipse. You can learn more about those details with our simple eclipse viewing instructions guide.

This blog post will tell you about the 2024 eclipse as seen from the Fredericton area in New Brunswick. Please check out all the links we’ve provided below to learn more about the 2024 total solar eclipse from other locations.

The Total Eclipse of April 8, 2024 in Fredericton

Fredericton is very well-placed to see totality!

Though not as deep into the path as we’d like, the downtown area will still get a very respectable 2m15s of totality!

The eclipse happens at different times in different locations. Use the slider on the map above to show you when totality will happen as the eclipse passes through the Fredericton area.

Where can I see the total eclipse?

Because of Fredericton’s location in the path, it’s very important to understand that the farther north and west you go, the more totality you’ll see. So for example, the airport will only see a minute and a half of totality. Across the river, at the intersection of 105 and Ring Rd, you’ll be in the shadow for almost two and a half minutes. That’s a huge difference, just based on your location within the city!

If you’re south of town, please note that Oromcto only gets about a minute of totality. If you’re much farther south than that, you won’t be in the path at all. You’ll do much better to head north on 148 or 104. The centerline on 104 is about 5km north of Hartland (which sees almost three and a half minutes of totality), and on 107 near Miramichi Lake (which gets 3m20s). The challenge will be finding a suitable viewing place; it’s not safe to simply stop by the side of the road and get out of your car!

Hartland may offer good locations for viewing, and you won’t lose much at all in the way of totality by only being slightly south of the centerline.



What will I see on eclipse day?

Because of Fredericton’s great location in the path, we'd recommend you find a safe spot to watch, and enjoy totality!

Order eclipse glasses! Remember that even if you are in the path of totality, if the Sun is not COMPLETELY eclipsed you MUST always use ISO-certified eye protection to watch the eclipse. You MUST use your eclipse glasses to observe all the partial phases.

Order eclipse glasses!

When will the eclipse happen?

Eclipse day is April 8, 2024
Eclipse day is April 8, 2024!

The big event happens just before 4:34pm ADT, and people in the downtown area will see about 2m 15s of totality.

The eclipse happens at different times in different locations. Use the slider on the map above to show you when totality will happen as the eclipse passes through the Fredericton area.

Use ISO-certified eye protection during the partial phases

Always remember the rule for using eye protection during an eclipse: If there’s ANY bright part of the Sun showing, then you have to use your eclipse glasses to watch the event.

That means if you can see anything at all of the Sun through the glasses, then the Sun is too bright and you have to leave the glasses on! If you can see absolutely NO piece of the Sun through the eclipse glasses, then it’s safe to take them off. But the second any bright part of the Sun becomes visible again, you have to put them back on – and this can be mere seconds after you took them off.


We also have an entire section of the site dedicated to providing much more detailed eclipse viewing instructions for you!


Wherever you decide to view from, be sure to plan your route carefully, and watch the weather to make sure you’ll have good skies on eclipse day.
