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 Monclova area in Coahuila. 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 Monclova

As totality continues through Mexico, the centerline travels toward the northeast. Monclova is near the southern edge of the path, and will be a great place to see 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 Monclova area.

Where can I see the total eclipse?

In Monclova, it is very important for you to be as far northwest as you can in order to maximize totality. For example, at the intersection of Highway 30 and the road Lib. Lic. Carlos Salinas de Gortari on the northwest side of town, people will see 2m 47s of totality. At the other side of town on the southeast side, where Road 57 and route 30 intersect, totality will last 2m 7s. Forty seconds is a lot of totality! If you have the ability to travel within the city, it’s best to be as far northwest as you can be.

If you are east or southeast of the city, the path of totality is just east of Castaños on road 57, or just east of El Oro on road 30.

That same road 30 is an excellent path to get you to the centerline on eclipse day, if you are able. Just turn north on road 20 in Cuatro Ciénegas, and the centerline is between Ocampo and El Oso on that same road. The centerline sees 4m 27s of totality, so the difference is absolutely worth the trip!

Cuatro Ciénegas itself will get 4m 16s of totality, so if that’s as far as you can go, you’ll still be better off than if you stay in Monclova.

If you are north of town, you can travel on 22 to road 53, and get to the centerline at Santa Rosa de Músquiz. You’ll see 4m 27s of totality there! (We realize it’s a bit of a drive to get there from Monclova, but if you’re already there it’s a great place to watch the eclipse from!)



What will I see on eclipse day?

The downtown area will see 2m 18s of totality, so we’d recommend finding a good spot clear of clouds, and enjoy the show!

When will the eclipse happen?

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

Monclova is an excellent place to see totality!

The big event happens just about 1:23:30pm CDT, and people in the downtown area will see about 2m 18s of totality.

(Please note that Coahuila begins Daylight Saving Time on April 7 – the day before the eclipse! Make sure you have your clocks moved ahead an hour to CDT on eclipse day!)

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 Monclova 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.
