On Monday, April 8, 2024, the galaxy system experienced a fleeting disruption as the moon travelled directly between the sun and Earth, casting a shadow on our planet.

As predicted by astronomists, the remarkable event lasted for barely five minutes, and people in cities in Mexico, Canada, and the United States were able to take in its splendour.

The eclipse began from the Pacific Ocean near the Kiribati islands and reached Mexico a few minutes after noon local time.

It then appeared over the Texas skies after 1:30 pm and travelled to other US states, including Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York State, Vermont and Maine. It was then visible along the Canadian border.

This year's eclipse was a spectacle because the moon completely obscured the sun in some cities, making it possible to see virtually all the planets visible to the naked eye.
