One of the most spectacular events in ⁠nature, a total solar eclipse is the result of the Moon passing between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk.

Niagara Falls is in the direct path of the 2024 eclipse and will experience a 100% total solar eclipse, making it a prime location for viewing. By comparison, much of the rest of Ontario including Toronto and the GTA will only see a partial eclipse.

Niagara is not expected to witness this rare event again until 2144 making it a bucket-list experience. In fact National Geographic has added this event and Niagara Falls to their Best of the World List for 2024

The eclipse will last from 2:04pm to 4:31pm, but the highlight will be the total solar eclipse from about 3:20pm to 3:23pm, 3.5 minutes in duration.

Highlights of this solar event in Niagara Falls include:

-The sky will darken

-The Sun’s corona will be visible

-Constellations, stars, and planets will be visible during totality

-Temperatures will drop as the sun is shaded by the moon

-Solar flares may be visible

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime event, there are very few rooms still available! Make a reservation
