On Monday, April 8, the sky will temporarily darken for millions of Americans in the path of totality during the 2024 solar eclipse.

This is the first total solar eclipse to pass across North America in seven years, and the next one will not be seen from the contiguous United States until August 23, 2044, according to NASA.

The exact time a solar eclipse will occur will vary, depending on the state and time zone. Of course, the visibility of the eclipse will also depend on Monday's weather.

Whether you're experiencing the path of totality from home or traveling to witness it in person, here's what to expect at the exact time of the eclipse.
